The faculty of Connecticut College voted that it had no confidence in the performance of President Katherine Bergeron, The Day reported.

The vote was 149 in favor, 11 against and eight abstaining.

Bergeron has been under fire for weeks at the college over a planned fundraiser that was set to be held at the Everglades Club, one of the oldest and most exclusive country clubs in Palm Beach, Fla. The venue has a history of racial discrimination and antisemitism; it famously barred both Black crooner Sammy Davis Jr. and Jewish fashion mogul Estée Lauder from even entering.

But students and faculty have raised other issues as well, including the president's commitment to shared governance.
