Key members of the University of Illinois faculty are calling for the school's board of trustees to fire President Michael Hogan. The call came in a letter sent to trustees as the board met in Urbana. Neither trustees nor Hogan were immediately available to comment. In the letter, faculty called Hogan's short time in charge of the university a ``failed presidency.'' Law professor Michael Moore was among the authors. He says more than 100 faculty members signed the letter. The letter follows trustees' direction to Hogan last week to fix his relationship with faculty. But faculty members say they're not willing to wait. Some members of the faculty have complained about Hogan's leadership style. They also fear some of his plans would reduce campus autonomy.
