The Faculty Senate passed a resolution that the search for Seton Hall’s next president is “incomplete” at an emergency meeting held this afternoon.
The resolution stated in part that “the Senate urges the Board of Trustees and the Board of Regents to honor their fiduciary responsibility for the University and to open a new search for the most qualified president of Seton Hall University.”
W. King Mott, the Chair of the Faculty Senate, said following the meeting that the resolution “will go in written form to the Provost” right away. He was seen entering President’s Hall at 4:37 p.m.
Mott added that the Faculty Senate serves in an “advisory” role to the Provost, who will take the resolution of the Senate to the Board of Regents and the University President.
The lone remaining presidential candidate, Msgr. Stuart Swetland, will be visiting the campus tomorrow and Friday.
Two candidates were originally provided by the Presidential Search and Screen Committee, one of which – Fr. Kevin Mackin – withdrew just days before his scheduled campus visit.
The Setonian will have full coverage of this story online and in tomorrow’s print edition.
