Willard College Faculty Senate Executive Board Proposes Faculty Sign Loyalty Pledges and Accepts Collegial Conversation with respect to the Proposal

If We Remain Silent" – L.A. County's Cold War Loyalty Checks | KCET

The Faculty Senate Executive Board proposed that all faculty be asked to sign a Loyalty Pledge to Willard College and its Senior Leadership. The proposal was met with a spirited discussion during the Faculty Senate plenary session. While some voiced concerns about “labor rights,” “accountability,” and a “hostile work environment,” the majority echoed the opinion of the Executive Board that such a Loyalty Pledge would ensure a smoother operation of the College. This same majority discounted the unfounded accusations of several disgruntled faculty that the presence of Dr. Cheryl Tina Fae Cotton on the Executive Board presented undue pressure on faculty to support the measure. It was noted in the minutes that Dr. Cheryl Tina Fae Cotton is both Director of the Counseling Service but is also a faculty in good standing in the Department of Experimental Psychology, whose publications on the effects of Solitary Confinement on reading skills have been well received around the world.

Loyally,

Dr. Hamstock Paine, President of the Faculty Senate Executive Board
