Faculty Vote No Confidence at U of the Pacific

November 6, 2018

Faculty at the University of the Pacific passed a vote of no confidence in Pamela Eibeck, president of the university, on Monday. Fifty-eight percent of the faculty participated, and of those, 93 percent supported a vote of no confidence. The vote followed a resolution of no confidence by the Academic Council -- the university’s faculty senate -- and student protests calling for Eibeck’s removal in the wake of campuswide budget cuts.

In response, Kevin Huber, chair of the Board of Regents, said that the "regents will review and discuss the information and provide a response to the Academic Council."

As of Wednesday, the board remained steadfast in its support of the president. In a letter to staff, faculty and students, Huber wrote that the board “strongly and unequivocally” supports Eibeck and the administration.
