Failure to Communicate
On the faculty's dramatic appearance at the trustees' meeting, the president is equally blunt. "Maybe they felt they needed to do something big to get my attention, and maybe they did. But I got it; I understand." To prove she means it, Bellanca said she plans to "meet with the department chairs, and keep that up until a new VP of instruction is in place."
Carrie Krantz confirms that for the first time, Bellanca attended a meeting of the department chairs in mid-April. "She made an excellent presentation with promise of improved communication and collaboration," Krantz emails. "Only time will tell to see if there are significant improvements."
