Medical imaging technology professor Don McDonnell will present the approved resolution to Naganathan, asking him to step down. And if Naganathan declines, all full-time faculty will vote whether they have confidence in Naganathan’s leadership sometime in late March, The Tribune reported.

McDonnell said he would make his presentation at the April 8 meeting before the OIT Board of Trustees, who can remove Naganathan. But Board Chairwoman Jessica Gomez said Thursday that board members fully support Naganathan’s leadership.
