Yes, Virginia, there is a …

… faculty senate. They just took a close to unanimous vote of no confidence in the university’s trustees.

The University of Virginia trustees who last week, after her being on the job for only two years, decided to dump the president and not tell anyone why.

Various faculty and high-level administrators are talking about leaving.

It looks as though Virginia has decided to model itself on Shorter University, much of whose faculty has left because they refuse to sign the following document:

I reject as acceptable all sexual activity not in agreement with the Bible, including, but not limited to, premarital sex, adultery, and homosexuality.

The Virginia statement, I guess, would go something like this:

I reject as acceptable all organizational activity not in agreement with strategic dianetics, including, but not limited to, foundational humanistic course offerings, faculty participation in university decisions, and communication with the university community.

I’m sorry. Make that strategic dynamism.

    Keep “strategic dianetics” — it’s beautiful! Fits with the current Rectortude.

    Sherman: I think you’re right – it’s a better fit.
