Transylvania Faculty Seeking President's Resignation
Faculty leaders at Lexington’s Transylvania University are calling for the resignation of President Owen Williams in a 35-page document sent to the school's trustees and regents.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reports three faculty leaders mailed the document this week on behalf of colleagues. The document accuses Williams of displaying a "dismissive and disrespectful" manner toward faculty, staff and students.
Trustees Chairman William T. Young Jr. said in a statement Wednesday that board members will review the information thoroughly. He didn't comment on the request for Williams' resignation.
The faculty cast a 68-7 vote of no confidence on May 24. Later the same day, trustees took a unanimous vote of confidence in Williams.
