Metro State Students: No Confidence in Chancellor
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Student leaders at Metropolitan State University in St. Paul have approved a vote of "no confidence" in the head of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system.
Metro State's student senate took the vote Friday. Among their concerns is that MnSCU Chancellor Steven Rosenstone has not been transparent with his financial actions.
It's the first vote of no confidence by MnSCU students.
In response, Rosenstone says he's "deeply troubled by the latest in a coordinated series of votes of no confidence," and has asked to meet in person to respond to the concerns.
The vote comes after five university faculty unions passed votes of no-confidence in the chancellor. MnSCU's two statewide faculty unions have also pulled out of Rosenstone's plan to revamp the system.
