MCC faculty, unionized employees support no confidence vote on Kress

Out of over 500 voting faculty members and unionized employees at Monroe Community College, 88 percent supported a vote of no confidence in President Anne Kress, the Faculty Senate and Faculty Association announced Monday.

The voting individuals were asked to respond to a proposed resolution from the Faculty Senate and Faculty Association — which represents teaching and professional employees — that included 68 specific charges or concerns against Kress and her team.

Voting took place on Monday and Tuesday of last week.

The resolution asked trustees to conduct a full review of Kress’ administration and to consider the possibility of dismissals.

MCC responded to the vote Monday, saying the college administration was “disappointed” in the vote, which they say was “very clearly related to the College’s ongoing contract negotiations with its Faculty Association union,” which are currently in mediation.
