ST. PAUL (AP) -- Faculty at all seven state universities have now approved "no-confidence" votes in Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Chancellor Steven Rosenstone.

The Metro State Faculty Association was the last university faculty to approve the vote.

Faculty association vice president Matt Filner says the faculty has "completely lost confidence" in Rosenstone's ability to serve MnSCU students, faculty and staff.

Reports say faculty groups at the other six state universities have passed similar resolutions over the past three weeks.

MnSCU's two statewide faculty unions have also pulled out of Rosenstone's plan to revamp the system.

Thomas Renier, chair of the Board of Trustees, reaffirmed his support for Rosenstone in the face of what he called a union tactic to "stop the critical conversations" to bring needed reforms to the system.
