Students sign petition labeling UND president Kennedy 'unfit'
February 17, 2017
GRAND FORKS, N.D.—An online petition started by University of North Dakota students to protest the administrative approach to campus budget cuts labeled university President Mark Kennedy as "unqualified and unfit" to represent the institution.
UND senior Madison Berns, a philosophy student, said she and a group of students drafted the change.org petition because they felt "our voices haven't been heard at all" in the reduction process. The petition states administrators have "kept the students in the dark about their plans to gut our liberal arts programs."
