JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Members of the University of Missouri Department of English say they don’t have confidence in Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin’s leadership.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1NQBOZ5 ) 26 members cast no-confident votes and two others abstained during a department meeting Tuesday.

University spokeswoman Mary Jo Banken says Loftin was not aware of department concerns. She says Loftin is working to listen to concerns expressed on campus.

A letter from associate professor Samuel Cohen to university system President Tim Wolfe and others says faculty members feel Loftin is disrespectful of shared governance. It says there’s low morale among faculty, staff and students.

The vote came as students were protesting and calling for Wolfe to be removed from office.
