CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Faculty at West Virginia University have approved a symbolic motion expressing no confidence in President E. Gordon Gee as the university addresses a $45 million budget shortfall. The university’s faculty assembly also passed a second motion Wednesday calling for WVU to freeze ongoing academic program and faculty cuts. The nonbinding votes were held a month after the university Board of Governors gave Gee a one-year contract extension through June 2025, when he plans to step down. The university is struggling with the financial toll of dwindling enrollment, revenue lost during the COVID-19 pandemic and an increasing debt load for new building projects.
