State board suspends ISU faculty senate, after senate dissed Vailas

The Idaho State Board of Education has voted to suspend the Faculty Senate at Idaho  State University, after the senate voted “no confidence” in ISU President Art Vailas, in whom the state board had just voted its full confidence. In a news release, the board said the move was “the most reasonable action to take at this time.”

Board President Richard Westerberg said, “The impasse between the leadership of the senate group and the administration has reached a point where the prospect of any kind of progress was simply non-existent. It’s time to start over.” The board, meeting today in Boise, instructed Vailas to implement an interim faculty advisory structure, and come back to the board with a model to review by April.
