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 The Faculty Senate Resolution 10-14, dated October 4, 2010, now withdrawn, admonishes the administrations' recommendations to eliminate several foreign language courses and faculty terminations due to budget cuts.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.
