Louisiana Board of Supervisors, Continued
The LSU Faculty Senate voted a continued vote of no confidence in its Board of Supervisors for not fullfilling its officially as well as frequently stated goal of unifying the LSU campuses into a single efficient system, retaining athletic personnel in connection with Title IX violations, peremptorily and unadvisedly overruling the LSU A&M administration and LSU A&M faculty leaders by ordering that classes be cancelled, hiring higher administration with no faculty input, rebuffing continuing requests to appoint faculty members who are not administrators to the Presidential Search Committee, as well as allowing a voting Board student representative and not faculty. The Faculty Senate Resolution 21-03 was adopted on April 22, 2021.
Louisiana Board of Supervisors
The LSU Faculty Senate voted no confidence in its Board of Supervisors for the board's inability to make appropriate decisions "regarding administrative leadership, budget deficiencies, or reorganization into a cohesive System structure." The Faculty Senate Resolution 13-07, adopted March 19, 2013, urges open and honest communication to start in order to restore confidence in their leadership capabilities.
No Confidence in the Budget-Cutting Process
The LSU Faculty Senate voted no confidence in the budget-cutting process, "including the Realignment Taskforce, the Right Sizing Advisory Committee, the FY12 Budget Crisis Committee, and any other such committees, known or unknown, none of which were appointed by the Faculty Senate." The Faculty Senate Resolution 10-14, dated October 4, 2010, now withdrawn, admonishes the administrations' recommendations to eliminate several foreign language courses and faculty terminations due to budget cuts. The resolution also states the Board of Supervisors be informed of the campus administration's violation of the Board's Regulations.
