600+ UT Austin Faculty Express Lack of Confidence in President Jay Hartzell

Hundreds of University of Texas at Austin faculty have signed a letter expressing a lack of confidence in President Jay Hartzell following pro-Palestinian protests on campus. The letter, signed by over 620 faculty members, accuses Hartzell of being unresponsive to concerns and violating trust by bringing state troopers to disperse a peaceful gathering. It demands dropped criminal charges and protection of students’ First Amendment rights. Hartzell defended the actions, emphasizing the need to maintain campus operations. While a no-confidence vote may not have legal power, it can lead to changes in leadership based on past data.
