UNE staff vote no confidence in VC

Staff see a structure they do not like

University of New England management isn’t selling staff on the proposed new structure. Among other unhappy alliances it would put law in the same faculty with agriculture, which does not strike some staff as a natural fit. And humanities staff fear being forgotten if joined to the large and powerful school of education.

Staff met this week to discuss the plan and endorsed an expression of no confidence in VC Annabelle Duncan, and interim provost and DVC Joyce Kirk.
