The gap between the Chico State faculty and the leading administration has been widened even further.

On December 10th, the Academic Senate voted to pass a disputed resolution, The Senate Statement of No Confidence. This resolution targets President Zingg and the administration directly beneath him. Including the positions, Interim Provost and Vice President for Business and Finance.

The resolution states, “The executive leadership has failed to effectively manage the development and implementation of policies and personnel processes that concern the faculty and staff of CSU, Chico.”

The Academic Senate approved the resolution with 24 votes in favor and only eight against.

It is unsettling when the administrative leaders have upset the faculty so heavily that a written document must be issued to demonstrate their disappointment.

How will faculty excel in their profession when they are unhappy with their place of work? Staff has expressed anger and frustration concerning the administration throughout the entire year.

The fact that staff and faculty have issued a document stating that they have no faith in the people holding the highest position is quite frankly, frightening.

Overall the uneasiness of the staff and faculty will affect the success of students. The school needs to unite and dismiss the hostility that is being so heavily conveyed within the administration. There needs to be ways for students and faculty to be more openly involved with administrative decisions.

The administration needs to develop habits of portraying transparent policies with everyone in the Chico State community.

Students need to start expressing interest in the policy making and administration of Chico State. President Zingg will be retiring at the end of this year and it needs to be clear that the decisions made by the administration are important to the student population.

So go to open forums. Check out the administrative choices being made in the office. And don’t be afraid to question the decisions being made by those above you.

Maybe a fresh start with a new administration next year will be the best thing to happen to Chico State in a while.
