ASU President Says He's Working on Improving Communications with Faculty

MARCH 15, 2005 - Posted at 7:54 a.m. CST

 

JONESBORO, AR - Arkansas State University president Les Wyatt says he's working on efforts to communicate better with faculty members after nearly half said in a survey that they had little trust in Wyatt.

On March 4, ASU's Faculty Senate released results of a survey of the school's faculty.  Questionnaires were sent to 413 faculty members, who were allowed to return them anonymously, and 232 responded.

Of those responding, 82 percent, representing 46 percent of the 413 who had the opportunity, said their level of trust in Wyatt was poor or very poor.

Since then, Wyatt said, he has held two meetings with administrators to discuss ways to better communicate and work with faculty.  He says he is concerned about low faculty morale.
