The Minot State University Faculty Senate has overwhelmingly approved a resolution of no-confidence in Chancellor Ham Shirvani.
That puts the faculty group in the same position as the North Dakota Student Association in opposing Shirvani.
The MSU Faculty resolution listed several points of concern including changes to the university system's tuition structure that the group says were made too quickly by Shirvani.
The resolution cites detrimental changes to procedures, breakdowns in communication and concerns about integrity.
A member of Minot State's Faculty Senate suggests the resolution urges dialogue to address these concerns.
(Devera Bowles, Faculty Senate Member) "It's too fast. We're moving to quickly. We have an accrediting body, the higher learning commission, that has rules, standards that are very clear about how governing bodies should oversee universities. So it's a concern to us that changes have been made by the state board of education so quickly."
The vote of the MSU Faculty Senate was 94% in favor of the no confidence resolution.
