5/13/2010: As you can imagine, Charles Martinez’s 0.65 time job off campus at OSLC doesn’t leave him a lot of time to do his 0.75 time job as UO’s Vice President for Diversity. This is why UO has never produced a written job description or had a public AA search – might raise too many questions about what we’re getting for the $140,000 we pay to top off his $82,000 from OSLC, or whether this arrangement is legal.
But that’s old news. Now apparently Martinez has been complaining to President Lariviere about being overworked. So UO has agreed to hire him yet another helper – I think this makes 5? What is your budget now Charles? What do you actually do? When?
