BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The Baton Rouge faculty senate of Southern University unanimously entered a vote of "no confidence" for System President Ronald Mason.

The President of the Faculty Senate Thomas Miller says Mason has a long history of failure and they're asking the board of supervisors to take action immediately to correct the problem.

Disagreements over the termination or Dr. James Llorens as Chancellor and financial mismanagement are among the many reasons the faculty senate says they do not have confidence in university leadership.

"There's too much money being spent on the wrong positions," said Miller. "An example of that, I can name three individuals in the systems office who have a combined compensation package of over a million dollars." "We have a consultant for retention who's been hired at $17,000 per month," he said.

Miller went on to say the faculty knows what to do about retention – hire more people for the registrar's office, financial aid and recruiting.

Miller also says that under Mason's leadership, many of the offices within the system have been duplicated on the Baton Rouge campus, leading to a chaotic structure.

With this more, the faculty senate hopes the board will reign in the systems president and give some authority back to the campus.
