University of Maine trustees consider former Gov. Malloy's academic fate
PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — The fate of University of Maine Chancellor Dannel Malloy is on the agenda as trustees meet in Portland.
Malloy was hired in Maine three years ago after serving two terms as governor of Connecticut. His contract, which includes a $350,000 salary, expires June 30, and trustees will be hearing from an outside firm that conducted a multi-year review of his tenure.
In recent weeks, the faculty senates of the University of Maine at Augusta, the University of Southern Maine and the University of Farmington have each issued no-confidence votes in Malloy. University of Maine at Machias faculty endorsed these votes on Friday as well.
Malloy has said he takes the resolutions seriously and that the pace of change throughout the system is causing anxiety.
The meeting took place Sunday and is scheduled to continue Monday at the University of Southern Maine.
