Great move by the U. Now let's dig into the cost information they recently created to transform the U into a flatter organization that is more effective and lower cost.

We will never know the true level of corruption and malfeasance until independent, external audits take place. The Medical School is so top-heavy with administrators, and an atmosphere of self-indulgence, the whole crew needs to go. The U. gets caught, scrambles, and makes some cosmetic gestures. The rot goes to the core.

It would be interesting to see what constituted Kaler's " extraordinary first year" results. Talk is cheap. What were the performance mesurements? How did he do?

Running a huge University takes a lot of intelligence and stamina. Instead of smearing everyone or anyone, why don't we have meaningful dialogue and investigate true extravagancies. If we smear we cannot recruit top talent. Change needs to happen BUT throwing ugly comments against current people won't help.

Bruinicks should be ashamed. I think Kaler has the U going in the right direction. Good for him.

Very small steps for what needs to happen at the University - but I'll give credit to them for actually doing something to reverse the decades long fiscal mismanagement of that place. It really is time to further pare down the U's mission - it should not and does not need to be everything to everybody. If research continues to be its' top goal - (along with supposedly educating its' students) then align it to that and let the State University handle educating General College type students.

University executives are looking for the loopholes right now. The corruption will go on as long as the U and all the public institutions have the taxpayers in their grip. There will be new creative titles for the same old graft.
