NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Glendale Community College President and Supt. Audre Levy was singled out in a report by state academic organizations as a source of growing mistrust and division between faculty members, administrators and trustees, teachers said Monday. The report, commissioned by Levy and the college’s Academic Senate, zeroed in on the president’s leadership and communication styles as sources of dissension, faculty members said. Trustees referred to the findings last week when responding to questions about the administration during a candidate forum, where incumbent Anita Quinonez Gabrielian defended Levy as a “very capable person” but added that the Board of Trustees and the college’s chief have had “a stressful relationship.
