East Carolina University Chancellor Steve Ballard is responding to a proposed resolution from Faculty Senate Officers and the ECU-AAUP. This week they said they wanted a hiring freeze and stipends cut in order to prevent job cuts.
In a letter to the faculty and ECU campus community, Ballard says he can assure them of at least two things.
That the administration will do everything to execute the budget policy of the board of trustees and continue to communicate the reality of the fiscal situation to the ECU community.
But he said he'll need help, asking for a collaborative, not adversarial, effort.
