Faculty members at Michigan State University are claiming a moral victory.  By an overwhelming majority, the MSU Faculty Senate approved a Vote of No Confidence in the Board of Trustees. 

The statement carries no legal weight.  It’s not a mandate for the board to act, nor does it prompt the resignation or removal of any of the trustees.  However, MSU professors see their vote as a  symbolic show of force.
