The Ohio University Faculty Senate voted 44-11 Monday night to approve a vote of no confidence in OU President Duane Nellis and VP for Finance Deborah Shaffer. Senators accused them of leading the university to a budget crisis made much worse by the coronavirus pandemic.

The vote came around 10 p.m. Monday during a lengthy digital meeting.
