CofC Faculty Senate votes 'no confidence' in board's choosing of McConnell

There was more controversy Tuesday night over the selection of Lt. Gov. Glenn McConnell as the next president of the College of Charleston.

The school's Faculty Senate said it believes the trustees have hurt the college's image, so they unanimously approved a resolution of "no confidence" in College of Charleston's Board of Trustees.

They question the integrity of the search for a new president, and contend the trustees made the faculty believe they had already decided who they were going to hire.

But that's not all, the faculty believe the board may interfere with the assignment of a controversial book on gay lifestyles which could impact accreditation.

The faculty also notes the board hasn't talked with them about plans for a possible merger with the medical university. 

Students and staff joined the Faculty Senate for their meeting Tuesday night, waiting almost two hours for the resolution vote.
