How to Fire a President: Voting "No Confidence" with Confidence
Schmidt, Peter
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n40 pA15 Jun 2009
College faculties often use votes of "no confidence" to try to push out the leaders of their institutions. Many do so, however, without giving much thought to what such a vote actually means, whether they are using it appropriately, or how it will affect their campus--and their own future. Mae Kuykendall, a professor of law at Michigan State University and an expert on corporate law, has spent much of the past two years studying the no-confidence vote's origins and uses in higher-education institutions and other organizations. In this interview, Kuykendall shares her insights on the no-confidence vote and explains how, and when, to undertake a no-confidence vote with confidence.
