Article: Michael Chmielewski – Editor-in-Chief
The University of Regina Council voted to not have a non-confidence vote in the President and Vice-President (Academic).
135 Council members were against the motion, 134 were for, 3 abstained, and 1 ballot was spoiled.
The wording of the motion is as follows: “That the University of Regina Council resolves that the following question shall be put to the members of the University of Regina Council by a secret ballot to close ten days hence, and that all members of Council shall be informed of the result:”
“The University of Regina Council has lost confidence in the President and the Provost and Vice-President (Academic).”
The next University Council meeting will take place on Oct. 29, and President Timmons said that she will also be holding an open house to address the concerns of the divided faculty.
The vote came after a little over an hour of debate on the motion by the Council.
