1/11/2010: From Insidehighered.com – Nice to see that some University boards have guts. The abuses at UO, with Frohnmayer and Moseley have been much more serious than what happened in NC, but this is Oregon and the newspapers and the OUS board pretend everything is fine.
The University of North Carolina System Board of Governors has adopted new limits on “retreat rights,” payments to departing campus chancellors to help them adjust to a return to teaching, The Charlotte Observer reported. Some political leaders in the state have been outraged by reports that some officials have received these payments — based on their senior administrative salaries — and then retired rather than returning to teaching. The new rule limits payments to six months at the salary of a faculty member in the department where the former administrator is returning. Until now, the payments were at the level of the administrative salary and could extend up to a year. In addition, a department chancellor who takes the money but doesn’t return to teaching will need to repay it. Similar policies are now being considered for provosts and vice presidents.
12/31/2009: Since we started this blog in April we have had 51,919 page loads and have earned $20.38 in google ad revenue, while spending $77 on bourbon. This means each of the UO Matters staff owes me $9.44. Happy New Year.
12/28/2009: At least Moseley’s vacation home was in Bend, not Dubai.
12/14/2009: From the Seattle Times:
University of Washington Provost Phyllis Wise is facing growing criticism from students, faculty and lawmakers for taking a seat on the corporate board of Nike, which last year signed a contract with the UW worth a minimum $35 million to the university.
“He was just an average-looking fellow — it’s not like he was Kobe Bryant or anything,” she said, fluttering her eyelashes. “But when he opened his mouth he was like Charlton Heston playing Moses.”
Hint: Some people said they were both troublemakers.
11/20/2009: We are taking a break. Posts will be light to none until after T-day. Meanwhile comments are open to the right.
11/16/2009: Good story in the Oregonian today by Suzanne Pardington, about low college enrollment of hispanics:
In 2007, Latinos made up nearly 12 percent of the 12th-grade class and less than 6 percent of freshmen in the university system. About 20 percent of first-graders that year were Latino.
Lots of talk about how other Oregon universities are trying to address this problem. No mention of UO or our VP for Diversity Charles Martinez.
11/9/2009: From KEZI News 9: An old oak tree gets a new lease on life after it fell last spring, totalling the car owned by the University of Oregon Provost. The UO Director of Sustainability, Steve Mital, proposed that a UO furniture making class do something with the wood. So next summer, the UO will hold a studio class to design and build furniture for the Provost’s office out of the tree that smashed his car.
11/4/2009: I don’t know what to think of this, from Harris Meyer in the Oregonian:
Football is about to make a comeback at the 1,500-student liberal arts campus. (Pacific University). Despite opposition from many faculty members and students, Pacific is recruiting players to field a team next fall. Administrators and others see football as boosting enrollment and tuition dollars. And, like other colleges and universities around the country, Pacific hopes football will lure more male students to its campus, where women outnumber men nearly 2-to-1. “It’s necessary to change the gender balance to be more representative of society,” says John Hayes, dean of Pacific’s college of arts and sciences. “At more than 60 percent female, there is a different classroom dynamic, and I don’t think the discourse is as rich.”…
Nationally, 57 percent of college students in 2007 were women, compared with 51 percent in 1980, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. The gender gap is starker at private liberal arts colleges, which often lack career-preparation degrees such as engineering and business offered by public universities that draw male students.
10/30/2009: Carl Malamud announces he is posting more legal documents from the Oregon DOJ, despite John Kroger’s assertion that they are copyrighted. From Boingboing.net.
People ask me all the time “who is The Dog?” I honestly don’t know. He/she seems smarter than the average dog, but that is true of many UO faculty, and administrators too.
LBJ slept around, drank whiskey, got rich selling his influence, and lied a lot even for a lawyer. Then one day he gave the best speech in American history. Four minutes before Congress gets over the shock and realizes they need to applaud. “… and should we conquer the stars, but fail at this cause, then we shall have failed as a nation …” Take that pretty boy Jack. Two months later they passed his bill. Even the southerners voted for it – because he had them by the balls. Oh yeah, we landed on the moon too.
