Vowing to “take back control” of the Faculty Senate by electing an administration-friendly slate of candidates, an administrator at Kean University has raised eyebrows with an apparent directive to his subordinates to bring him the votes.
James A. Castiglione, president of the Kean Federation of Teachers, sent a message to union members attaching the email from Mr. Connelly. In that email, Mr. Castiglione wrote, the executive vice president “leans on lower-level administrators to round up votes for their slate of candidates in the Senate election.”
He said the email exposes the slate “as completely one-sided and beholden to the Farahi administration.”
