Grad vote results: no confidence, low turnout

Question: Do you have confidence in James Wagner as President of Emory University?

433 students, or 22% of the Laney Graduate School, voted. While that percentage is lower than we would have liked, it’s worth noting that we still turned out more voters than the faculty poll, which provided a week-long window. (We might also note that only 90 students voted in the last GSC officer elections.)

All votes
117 (27%) Yes -­‐ I do have confidence in James Wagner as President
295 (68%) No -­‐ I don’t have confidence in James Wagner as President
21 (5%) Abstain -­‐ I abstain from this vote
As a percentage of all LGS students
6% Yes -­‐ I do have confidence in James Wagner as President
15% No-­‐I don’t have confidence in James Wagner as President
1% Abstain -­‐ I abstain from this vote

Edited 4/17 to correct number of voters.

Faculty no-confidence vote on Wagner this week

We’ve just received word that the faculty-wide vote on Wagner’s conduct will run from Monday through Friday this week.

The ballot will precede a similar vote by graduate students (administered by the GSC), scheduled for April 16.

Perhaps the Re-Visioning Emory conference will be a catalyst for participation?
