Claybrook declined to speculate about the reason senators denied confirmation to Zelaya.
“This is a rough start, but I still think we’re going to have a great year.”
Drew Barber was denied reconsideration for internal vice president during Tuesday night’s Senate meeting. However, Michael Apple was confirmed for the vice president of finance by a large margin.
During a question and answer period before the Senate, Apple was asked his opinion on the “Student Success Fee” that has been recommended by University President R. Bowen Loftin and will likely be considered by the Board of Regents later this week. Loftin previously indicated the fee would be used to improve student success, reduce bottlenecks limiting degree progress and retain employees
Apple compared the fee to administrators “asking students to write them a blank check,” and that the students need to know where that money would go.
