The Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne Faculty Senate passed a vote of no confidence Monday against the university’s chancellor, Vicky Carwein.

The vote passed 27-12, with five abstentions. The resolution says Chancellor Carwein is not committed to the university’s mission and strategic plan. It cites examples of what some on the faculty see as a failure of leadership, including declining enrollment and revenues.

IPFW professor and Indiana University Faculty Speaker Andy Downs voted for the resolution, and says he has no confidence in Chancellor Carwein’s ability to lead IPFW.

“While we might be able to work with her here as the chancellor, I think that she has a lot of proving to do because to this point, the bad has certainly outweighed the good,” Downs said.

After the vote passed, Carwein sent out a statement saying Purdue President Mitch Daniels and the Purdue Board of Trustees will continue to support her as chancellor.

The vote of no confidence comes after university officials announced the elimination of several academic programs in a controversial restructuring decision.
