Participation in the vote of confidence or no confidence in Blair Lord, the vice president for academic affairs, ended at 5 p.m. Monday.
Those who voted were able to choose between two options, one being “I do not have confidence in the performance of Dr. Blair Lord as provost and vice president for academic Aafairs” or “I do have confidence in the performance of Dr. Blair Lord as provost and vice president for academic affairs.”
The vote of confidence orno confidence came from a petition the Faculty Senate received asking to have the vote with 128 signatures.
In the Faculty Senate constitution, if members receive a petition with 20 percent of the faculty’s signatures, they are obliged to make sure a vote happens on the topic.
The voting started at 9 a.m. on Nov. 2.
The Faculty Senate did not sponsor the vote of confidence or no confidence and did not tell the faculty how to vote in either direction.
The results are not yet available. Once they are, they will be forwarded to President David Glassman and the Board of Trustees, who will then decide what to do with the information.
