PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - Dramatic changes are underway at the University of West Florida in Pensacola.

The university announced Saturday that Martha Saunders has been promoted to executive vice president and will assume daily operations and budget management. The move came in response to a vote of no confidence in President Judy Bense by the university’s faculty senate in September.

The Pensacola News Journal (http://on.pnj.com/1rR8Z0S ) reports Bense and faculty union president Steve Belko hashed out the details in a meeting on Friday.

Saunders will continue in her role as provost and vice president of academic affairs. All other vice presidents will report to her.

Bense says the move will allow her to focus on external matters such as fund-raising and the state’s new performance based funding metric.
