ISU faculty, administration still in turmoil

Here's a news item from the Associated Press:  POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) — Faculty members at Idaho State University have elected new leaders in a shake-up endorsed by the state Board of Education. The board voted in February to dissolve the university's previous Faculty Senate, which had clashed with school President Arthur Vailas and called for his ouster. While new faculty leaders were elected this month as part of a plan to smooth things over, the two sides still appear at odds. The locks at the Faculty Senate offices were changed after Vailas successfully pushed to dissolve the group. But when the newly elected faculty leaders asked the administration for a key so they could immediately begin their work, that request was denied. The Idaho State Journal reports university administrators want the new Faculty Senate to wait until the fall.
