Henderson State University’s tenured faculty have approved a no-confidence vote aimed at the Arkadelphia college’s president and three vice presidents.
Seventy-three faculty members voted.
The results were:
For: 47, or 64.4 percent
Against: 18, or 24.7 percent
Abstain: 8, or 11 percent.
The vote relates to President Glen Jones and three HSU vice presidents: Brett Powell, Steve Adkison and Jennifer Boyett.
The anonymous voting was done online and wrapped up at noon Tuesday. It came after seven staff layoffs and other budget-cutting measures in light of a $3.2 million deficit entering fiscal 2018.
