On Monday, an army of teachers and union members filled the Board of Trustees meeting at Monroe Community College.
The goal was to raise awareness to issues that the faculty claim are long-running and deeply-rooted in the college's administration that include retirement, contract violations and treatment of employees.
"I felt unsafe, I felt disrespected, I was disrespected," said one teacher, who alleges the MCC administration failed to act on a threat he received by a student.
"I'm saddened and disappointed by the lack of respect that emanates from this board," said another teacher.
Last month, 88 percent of the more than 500 members of MCC's teaching staff supported a vote of 'no confidence' in President Anne Kress.
While the confidence vote bares no teeth, it's ultimately up to the Board of Trustees to decide Kress' fate.
The board previously voiced their support of her, and affirmed that support in the adoption of an unplanned resolution on Monday prior to the public comment period.
The resolution confirmed their confidence in, and support of, President Kress.
