Our administration has not posted the 2013 data yet, but casual empiricism suggests continued bloat under President Gottfredson, particularly at the higher levels, e.g. RIGE, the General Counsel’s office, “strategic communications”, and his own byzantine org chart.

72% increase in non tenure track full-time faculty: from 380 to 655.
34% increase in classified staff: from 973 to 1304.
