Staff unions united; students petition for Kean President’s removal

UNION, NJ…University faculty and staff are calling on the Kean University Board of Trustees to remove President Dawood Farahi alleging that he has falsified numerous claims on his resume. After a contentious public meeting last week, students started a petition to remove the President. The membership of the Kean Federation of Teachers (KFT), an American Federation of Teachers local, which represents faculty, librarians and professional staff, voted unanimously to call for President Farahi’s resignation. Another staff union, the International Federation of Professional, Technical Engineers (IFPTE), local 195, which represents approximately 135 janitors, skilled-trades workers and security officers has joined the call to remove President Farahi.
Quoting from the University’s Academic Integrity Policy at last week’s crowded Trustee meeting, junior Ashley Kraus, from Vernon asked of Dr. Farahi, “If we have to abide by it, shouldn’t you?” Students have launched a petition drive calling for the “immediate removal of Dr. Dawood Farahi from his position as President of Kean University.”
