No confidence votes

11/7/2013: Very interesting column in the Chronicle, by a Dean who reports being blind-sided by a faculty vote of no-confidence, which was followed by his firing. UO needs an evaluation system for its senior administrators so they can get useful feedback from the faculty, before things get to this level. The UO Senate voted last year to require that the UO administration develop such a process, but things got stalled – just as the need for this feedback is getting intense. President Gottfredson’s first evaluation was conducted in secret by OUS in spring. The faculty did not know it was even being done, much less have an opportunity to provide him with feedback on his performance. Previous post on this here.
