UK Libraries Faculty turn out in large numbers for Faculty Trustee Election

UK Libraries faculty made their voices heard this month by turning out in high numbers to elect a faculty representative to the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees.  Approximately 70 percent of UK Libraries faculty cast a ballot in the election, qualifying as the second-highest participation among the colleges behind the College of Nursing.  Overall turnout across UK was also relatively strong, with 49 percent of all UK faculty members collectively casting 1,022 votes.  In the end, John Wilson from the College of Medicine was elected to his second term as Faculty Trustee, to begin July 1 with over 60% of the vote.  Congratulations, Trustee Wilson!
