The faculty union of Lansing Community College presented the board Monday night with a vote of no confidence against President Brent Knight, and the board responded by passing a resolution expressing confidence in Knight, The Lansing State Journal reported. Board members said that the faculty vote was a tactic in contract negotiations. Faculty members have been working without a contract since the summer of 2010. But faculty members said that was but one of their grievances, and that they were frustrated by the administration's lack of consultation with them on academic matters, a new enrollment management system they did not like, and spending decisions they consider questionable.
