1/17/2012: I was wrong. I said Jim Bean was getting $775 a month to pay for his BMW while he was on sabbatical. But, in truth, Bean was only getting the Beamer money while he was Provost:
Now that he’s on sabbatical, it appears he’s only getting 60% of $322,140. No Beamer. Bummer:
Will the students have to make his car payments if he becomes provost again? Unfortunately, we’ll probably find out. Will Berdahl make him undergo a performance review first? What do you think?
