MCC Statement in Response to No-Confidence Vote; MCC President Kress Available to Media Tomorrow (11/26/2018)
We are disappointed in the results of the Faculty Senate/Faculty Association vote.
The vote is very clearly related to the College’s ongoing contract negotiations with its Faculty Association union—negotiations which are currently in mediation. MCC remains committed to negotiating at the table and looks forward to achieving an agreement that respects our talented employees and the current fiscal climate for higher education.
President Kress and her administration are dedicated to working with our shared governance partners and all employees for the benefit of our students—because our College is a model for our region, state and nation, and a great community asset. Moreover, it is a rewarding place to work, as evidenced by our employee retention rate of 95 percent and our teaching faculty retention rate of 97 percent.
