The rules stated that for the no-confidence measure to pass, it would need the support of half the faculty from the 13 two-year campuses, plus one, or 139 votes….
The UW Colleges department chairs who pushed for the referendum on Sandeen’s leadership demanded a further breakdown of the vote. That breakdown shows a much higher percentage of faculty who cast votes were in favor of the no-confidence vote against Sandeen.
The breakdown has now been released:
Total number of faculty: 277
Votes in favor of a no-confidence statement against Sandeen: 106
Votes against: 88
Total votes against, including non-voters: 171
