University of Maine System Chancellor James Page weighed in Monday on the turmoil surrounding a faculty vote of no confidence in University of Southern Maine President Selma Botman.

“I support President Botman’s efforts to address these challenges, and at the same time I take the concerns raised by the Faculty Senate in its recent action very seriously,” Page wrote. “It is nevertheless essential that — at all times and especially now — the university community act in a unified way to serve our students and the people of Maine.”

Page, who has been on the job less than a month, has experience on both sides of the issue, having worked in both administration and as a member of the faculty at UMaine and the University of Kansas.
