The Bord of Regents has appointed a new President for Kennesaw State University withou any faculty involvment. This violates the normal procedures for the appointment of a new president. The usual procedure is to have a search committee, with a significant faculty representation, do a search and submitt a list of names, often three, to the Board of Regents. The appointment of Kennesaw’s new president occured without a search committee. The AAUP stands for shared governeance and there was no sharing of governance over this vital position.
