Professor group criticizes LSU reorganization

BATON ROUGE- The nation's top organization of college professors is asking LSU to end what it calls a "seeming disregard" for faculty participation in a university reorganization effort.

The American Association of University Professors, based in Washington, D.C., says efforts including faculty in discussion have been largely symbolic.

The Advocate reports that a seven-page letter sent to LSU leaders this week is a politely worded warning that the university could end up on the organization's censure list for the second time in less than 12 months.

The LSU Board of Supervisors is working to consolidate the LSU System and Baton Rouge campus under a single leader.

LSU Board Chairman Hank Danos did not return calls seeking comment about the letter, but he previously has denied disregarding faculty input in the reorganization.
