An unofficial group of faculty at the Catholic University of America has voted to declare “no confidence” in the school’s president and provost, adding another dramatic chapter to a simmering dispute over cost-cutting efforts and other issues at the 131-year old institution.
According to documentation provided to Religion News Service, 65 members of an independent group of CUA educators called the Faculty Assembly voted by secret ballot early this week to express no confidence in their president, John Garvey, by a vote of 62-0, with 1 abstention. They also voted to express no confidence in provost Andrew Abela by a vote of 63-0, with 2 abstentions.
