hartwick logoONEONTA – The Hartwick College Board of Trustees a few minutes ago declared it has “complete confidence” in President Margaret Drugovich after 41 of 75 faculty members present at a meeting earlier in the day supported a “vote of no confidence.”

“The faculty’s vote is unwarranted and serves only to harm the college,” said Francis Landrey, the trustees’ chairman.  “Put quite simply, President Drugovich’s leadership over the more than seven years of her presidency is cause for celebration and warrants our deep gratitude.”

The 41 votes comprise 37 percent of the 111 full-time faculty members, who were the only ones eligible to cast ballots in today’s vote, according to college spokesman David Lubell.
