   LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Transylvania University faculty leaders are calling for the resignation of President Owen Williams in a 35-page document sent to the school's trustees and regents.
 
   The Lexington Herald-Leader  says three faculty leaders mailed the document this week on behalf of colleagues.
 
   The document accuses Williams of displaying a "dismissive and disrespectful" manner toward faculty, staff and students.
 
   Trustees Chairman W.T. Young Jr. said in a statement Wednesday that board members will review the information thoroughly. He didn't comment on the request that Williams' resignation be sought.
 
   The faculty cast a 68-7 vote of no confidence on May 24. Later the same day, trustees took a unanimous vote of confidence in Williams.
