[September 16, 2009]  URBANA -- The University of Illinois Faculty Senate has voted on a resolution supporting the removal of President B. Joseph White and Chancellor Richard Herman from office in the wake of an admissions scandal at the school.

HardwareThe Senate briefly considered an altered resolution that didn't mention either leader and called for a review of leadership, but voted 98-55 in favor Monday to support an "orderly transition" removing both leaders from office.

The nonbinding resolution will go on to Gov. Pat Quinn and the school's board of trustees.

The leadership debate was prompted by revelations that university admissions gave special consideration to applicants with political connections.

Much of Monday's discussion took place in closed session.
