Doane faculty members seek no-confidence vote against university president

LINCOLN (AP) — Ten faculty members have called for a no-confidence vote in the leadership of the Doane University president.

The Lincoln Journal Star reported that a letter submitted to the Faculty Council on Tuesday asks Doane’s teachers for a formal vote stating that they do not support President Jacques Carter. He’s in his seventh year leading the liberal arts college in Crete, Nebraska.

The eight-page letter says Carter has failed to follow through on strategic initiatives to raise enrollment, expand the university presence in Omaha and complete fundraising campaigns. It also says Carter has mismanaged personnel, citing “incredible turnover in key academic leadership positions.”

Carter didn’t immediately return a call Thursday from the Associated Press. University spokesman Mike Lefler said Carter is out of the country and unavailable.
