SIUC Faculty Senate gives vote of no confidence against Dunn

Posted: Updated:

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- A group of SIU faculty members wants system president Randy Dunn gone.

The Carbondale campus Faculty Senate gave a vote of no confidence against the president Tuesday.

Faculty Senate president Jonathan Bean said the campus has lost faith in Dunn.

"The documents that we read broke the trust of SIUC faculty with President Dunn," Bean said.

The documents include nearly 1,900 pages of emails and notes between Dunn and others, discussing a funding shift between Carbondale and Edwardsville.

They show Dunn willingly left some Carbondale officials in the dark and even worked to use a proposal to split the university system as leverage.

"President Randy Dunn's job is to act as a shield to outside interference in the system," Bean said. "But we saw through the FOIA'd emails, that rather than act as a shield against outside interference, he was actively encouraging outside interference."

Bean says the 25-1 vote wasn't about shifting money from one campus to the other. He feels it was rushed and needs to be studied.

"All that we can as SIUC faculty is express whether the timing of that reallocation was wise," Bean said.

But the political situation at SIU has become too tough to navigate.

"The SIUC Faculty Senate knows that the board is divided," Bean said.

Bean said faculty at SIUC want Dunn gone and they want the board of trustees to address the situation before its next meeting in September.
