West Liberty Faculty Vote No Confidence in President

October 28, 2021

The West Liberty University Faculty Senate voted no confidence in President W. Franklin Evans Tuesday after determining several weeks ago that Evans plagiarized several public speeches.

The vote passed 14 to 1, with one abstention. The Senate will also suggest to the Board of Governors that Evans not be involved in future personnel decisions at the college, including hiring, firing, promotion and tenure. 

The board decided last week to enforce some kind of disciplinary action against the president and will meet again next Wednesday to specify exactly what form that action will take.

(This article was updated to note the Senate will bring its suggestions to the board on Wednesday).
