RATIONALE
:  On Tuesday, May 9th , 2017 the CSU San Bernardino Faculty Senate passed a “Resolution of No Confidence in the President of California State University, San Bernardino.” On May 8th, Trustee Emeritus and former Chair of the Board of Trustees Lou Monville and Paul Granillo, a community member, published an op-ed piece against the resolution entitled “Academic Senates Need More Transparency”
(
http://www.sbsun.com/opinion/20170508/academic-senates-need-more-transparency-guest-commentary).  Monville and Granillo are both graduates of CSUSB and both were members of the presidential search committee that resulted in the hiring of CSUSB President Morales.  In that piece, Monville and Granillo break the confidentiality of the presidential search process by publicly disclosing confidential committee deliberations and the identity of a finalist.  The breach of confidentiality is an egregious violation of the very principles the Chancellor and Board of Trustees have used to justify confidential or closed presidential searches, and calls into question the continued use of that mechanism to produce the best qualified candidates for a campus presidency.   Moreover, the tone of the op-ed shows a complete lack of respect for academic senates and a misunderstanding of the principles of collegial shared governance.
