KUTZTOWN--Only a few hours ago, APSCUF-KU (Association of Pennsylvania State College & University Faculties, Kutztown University chapter) voted to move ahead with a vote of "no confidence" in KUs president, Dr. F. Javier Cevallos.
The vote comes after months of negotiations that have shown little result on issues that APSCUF-KU has raised in a bill of particulars.
Students, faculty, and residents of Kutztown were split on the decision of whether or not such a vote should be taken. An open meeting was held on Jan. 31 in KUs Alumni Auditorium. Individuals from the campus and community urged for the vote to take place while others praised Cevallos for his work.
Today, the APSCUF representatives from each of the departments within KU voted to move ahead with the vote of "no confidence."
