CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- A group of 14 faculty members at the University of Illinois' flagship campus have written a letter to the Board of Trustees asking for Michael Hogan's presidency to "be ended at the earliest opportunity."
The News-Gazette in Champaign reports ( http://bit.ly/zgQ6p0 ) the letter cites "no confidence" in Hogan and says he lacks the "values, commitments, management style, ethics, and even manners" to hold the position. Professor Michael Moore, who is one of the letter's authors, said that by Friday 95 faculty members had signed the letter, citing concerns about Hogan's leadership.
The faculty members are circulating the letter and plan to send it to trustees next week. It follows a half-dozen other letters sent in recent weeks.
A university spokesman did not immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment.
