Jackson State Faculty Votes No Confidence in President

January 30, 2023

The Faculty Senate of Jackson State University has voted no confidence in President Thomas Hudson, The Clarion Ledger reported.

Dawn Bishop McLin, president of the senate, said, “These university leaders, including Hudson, have exhibited a continuous pattern of failing to respect shared governance, transparency, accountability, and have worked outside of professional norms that have broad implications for the campus climate, the reputation of Jackson State University, and the university’s commitment both to providing a high-quality education and to carrying out its mission of a commitment to excellence. The faculty senate remains intent to advance the concerns of the faculty and expresses a continued willingness to engage in any forum to yield remedy to the issues shared by its body.”

Hudson said, “I look forward to working with the entire body of the faculty senate to address any concerns. Shared governance, academic prominence and student success are common goals that we mutually agree are essential to the growth of our institution.”
