West Liberty Faculty Votes No Confidence in Administrator

West Liberty University's Faculty Senate has voted no confidence in another administrator.

The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register reports the Faculty Senate approved the no confidence vote in chief financial officer Jack Wright on Wednesday during a closed meeting.

Faculty Senate chairwoman Linda Cowan confirmed the vote to the newspaper. She says several factors played a role in the decision, including a lack of communication about a plan to close three buildings on campus.

Wright declined to comment on the vote.

West Liberty announced Wednesday that the buildings will remain open for the 2015-2016 academic year.

The Faculty Senate voted no confidence in former President Robin Capehart in early March. Capehart later resigned amid an ethics investigation.
