FORT WAYNE, Ind. — The Faculty Senate at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne has given a vote of no confidence to Chancellor Vicky Carwein after about half the school’s tenured faculty signed a petition to oust her.

The Journal Gazette reports Carwein sent an email to the campus community after the vote stating her intention to stay after receiving backing from Purdue University President Mitch Daniels.

The senate also approved a resolution seeking to reinstate academic programs the administration announced last month would close to save money. The petition states that that Carwein failed to adequately represent the interests of the campus in studies that have led to the suspension of several programs and a proposal to split the school into two colleges.
