Results of the no-confidence vote sponsored by UPTE have been delivered to UCOP.
UPTE's press release is here (PDF). Over 96% of those who voted chose to express no confidence in Yudof's leadership and UCOP in general. We don't know at this point how many people voted, but it is in any case a strong signal. According to the SF Chronicle, UCOP dismissed the results as a "publicity stunt." They are right, in that the vote is certainly non-binding: Yudof answers to the Regents and not to the employees of the University.
But the Regents should take notice that Pres. Yudof managed, in a mere fourteen months in office, to antagonize a vast portion of UC faculty and staff. This is no mean feat, probably unparalleled in the history of the University.
So here is a question for the Regents: is Yudof the best person to steer the University of California during these difficult times?
