Posted: March 20, 2012 in Uncategorized

March 19, 2012: Lansing Community College faculty presented a declaration to the LCC Board of Trustees in which they expressed their complete lack of confidence in the leadership of college president Brent Knight. The letter read into the board minutes included accusations of fiscal mismanagement and mistreatment of college workers:

“Dr. Knight’s administration created a hostile work environment that has fostered fear, stifled scholarly work of faculty members, and diminished job satisfaction with a culture that does not promote a healthy, safe, and respectful work environment. Further, Dr. Knight has failed to build and sustain strong and effective labor/management relations through collaboration, as evidenced by the administration’s failure to follow progressive discipline procedures, layoff of faculty members vital to serving students, and two years without a faculty contract to establish appropriate faculty workload with competitive compensation and benefits at Lansing Community College that values employees as its greatest resource, and strives to be an employer of choice.”
