The vote came two weeks after university president Sidney Ribeau announced he was retiring. The executive committee of the board of trustees is charged with evaluating the performance of the university’s president.

In response, board chair Addison Barry Rand issued a statement which read in part, “The board is committed to effective governance as we make timely, appropriate, and difficult decisions as all governing boards and universities must do from time to time.”
