在巴尔的摩的马里兰州艺术学院(云母)的教师在巴尔的摩中的“当前政府的不足和混乱的运作不足”撤回了他们对学校的领导力的支持。上周,一位教师汇编对萨米州萨姆梅州萨姆梅州萨姆梅州萨姆耶·普(Provost David Bogen,Operation and Finance / Coo Douglas Mann等高级管理人员都没有信心投票。

大会主要由111个主要是全职教师组成,支持92票的决定,有利于,九名成员投票和10次弃权。(云母目前共有149名全职教师。)

在宣布投票委员会的一封信中,大会概述了一系列“在这场危机之前存在的深度全身问题”,它所说的Covid-19大流行被加剧了。这些包括领导地位沟通不良的索赔;缺乏金融透明度;过度的工作量需求;忽视教师专业知识的单方面和单方面,非包容性决策实践。

“This administration has failed to create a functional, cooperative, and inclusive governance structure that would empower community members and strengthen MICA,” the letter reads. “Instead, the inequities of university-wide systems of governance prevent faculty, staff, students, and the administration from working together to address problems as equally valued members of a community.”

Among the specific examples cited by the letter’s authors is a fraught planning process for the 2020 fall semester that the group says failed to properly incorporate input from staff and faculty.

“参与规划集团的教师看到,拟议的卫生议定书对于工作室和共享设施不足,并且在漏斗时间和资源进入远程学习准备中,申请在线学期的更早的决定不成功地倡导,”董事会。

“在同一时间发出了一个机构范围的授权,云母可以重新分配其在线教学资源的公共卫生措施和更好地为一个完全遥控模型的教师进行了一些1.4米的投资,”这封信继续存在。

大会对当前行政当局的批评主要侧重于其工作流程和通信风格,它谴责效率低下,官僚主义,最终向工作人员递减和低位化。它争论的后果包括不平等的资源,如设备,设施和资金,以及友好而不是部门,部门和办事处的合作网络 - 一个“行政努力加强,而不是分解的系统。“

云母的发言人告诉过度,董事会将举行会议讨论这封信,并将在本金博宝188周末对教师提供正式的回应。

Jason Corace, a professor in the Interactive Arts department at MICA and director of the school’s BFA in Game Design program, says rapid growth in administration and senior staff positions in the last 10 years has led to “an increased disconnect between the administration and the faculty, students, and staff.”

“尽管我们努力与当前行政行政到共同治理的努力,但政府在最后一分钟内仍然在专业领导力的最后一分钟内继续制定广泛的机构决策,”依据讲述过度或没有磋商。金博宝188

“我想看看受托人的董事会与教师,员工,学生和校友一起重新想象一个政府在2020年在一个非营利性艺术和设计机构看起来像什么,”他补充道。“我们是这个国家的艺术教育的关键点,需要花这一刻重新考虑我们目前运作的权力结构。”

    Bravo to the faculty, staff and students of MICA on their vote of no confidence. As with many other administrative bureaucracies the time has come to recognize that they are perfectly prepared for a world that no longer exists and unable to respond to the one that does.
