Members of the University of West Alabama faculty have formed a chapter of the American Association of University Professors.
They formed the chapter in response to the recent controversy surrounding the University’s Board of Trustees.
One of their first actions was to endorse the faculty senate's resolution asking for resignations of seven board members. They also are calling on the governor to demand these resignations. None of the seven Board of Trustee members have yet to step down.
As you may recall, the controversy surrounding UWA forced it to be placed on probation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
