AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF UNIVERSITY PROFESSORS
UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY CHAPTER
February 28, 2000
Dear (Board Member)
We are taking the unusual step of sending you a resolution, passed unani-mously by the AAUP Executive Committee, because the time until the next Board meeting is very short and this issue is of great concern to the UK faculty.
We are very concerned that if Dr. Wethington attempts to appoint a permanent chancellor we will have a situation similar to that of last summer, which did the University no good at all. Already the University Senate Council has passed resolutions on this matter (please contact Dr. Roy Moore for the details if you wish) and the full Senate will meet the day before your Board meeting to con-sider this issue. We sincerely hope that you can take action to defuse this situa-tion. We cannot understand why Dr. Wethington would presume to appoint a permanent chancellor in his last year in office and we hope the Board will pre-vent him from doing so.
