Initial response to Friday’s vote of no confidence

Dear Texas Woman’s Colleagues,

You have likely heard about the vote of no confidence of Provost Kapinus taken on Friday by the TWU Faculty Senate. I was shocked and surprised, and I have already begun efforts to gather the relevant facts and understand the various perspectives.

In terms of the next steps, I plan to meet with TWU Faculty Senate leadership on Monday after spring break and listen. I want to understand from their perspective where we went wrong. Then, I will work diligently with Provost Kapinus and the TWU Faculty Senate until we arrive at a satisfactory resolution to the issues that have led us to this point.

We have persevered through some challenges in the past, and we will again now. With open minds, productive dialogue, and a purposeful action plan, we will emerge ready to not only face an uncertain future but lead it.
