MSSU president directed to make up with faculty

Sunday, September 20, 2009 | 5:43 p.m. CDT

JOPLIN — Faculty members at Missouri Southern State University are pledging to move forward with a no-confidence vote in their president's leadership after he retained his job.

On Friday, Missouri Southern's board of governors completed a new contract with president Bruce Speck. But The Joplin Globe reported the board also said he needed to "renew efforts to improve relations with the faculty and to address faculty concerns in terms of leadership, management and judgment without retaliation."

Specific details as to what action Speck must take to accomplish those efforts were not outlined in a press release.

The board also acknowledged in the statement that it was "fully aware of the dissatisfaction of the faculty."
