Fresno State academic senate says Castro should not hold rank of tenured professor

The draft of the no-confidence resolution stated that Castro does not deserve to hold the rank of a tenured professor.
FRESNO. Calif. (KFSN) -- Fresno State's academic senate passed three new resolutions related to the university's handling of sexual harassment allegations under former president, Dr. Joseph Castro.

The resolutions also included a vote of "no-confidence", as Castro remains in an executive transition program through February 2023.

Further resolutions called for a thorough review of current training for Title 9 staff and acknowledged harm resulting from sexual harassment by former vice president of student affairs, Frank Lamas.
