There's growing talk among faculty at Kentucky State University to push for a "no confidence" vote regarding President Raymond Burse after they say tensions continue to escalate between the leader and university professors.

Increasingly, KSU faculty members told The State Journal that Burse is "no longer fit to hold his position," and they claim that his style of leadership is inflexible and "tyrannical."

The environment is far different than the first months of Burse's tenure, when Burse was cheered for increasing the salaries of some staff members.
