Earlier today the EWU Senate Faculty voted in favor of the vote of no confidence in President Mary Cullinan.

The vote tally was 35-2, with four abstentions, and one absence.

President Cullinan was upset with, yet respected the Senate Faculty’s decision. She cited that the Senate Faculty had a right to “voice concerns and provide feedback in accordance with its bylaws.”

The Board of Trustees issued a group statement after stating, “In unprecedented times, the EWU Faculty Senate appears to have intentionally overlooked a fair and comprehensive portrayal of Dr. Cullinan.”
