Journalism dean search fails

2/1/13: I don’t know why, but the search to replace SOJC dean Tim Gleason has failed to produce an acceptable candidate. UO ad here. The search was led by the outside search firm Isaacson Miller – apparently Bob Berdahl’s choice. Next steps presumably include reaching farther down the list or appointing an interim.

1/13/13: Journalism dean candidates announced:

Dr. Thomas Jacobson

Dr. Michael Evans

    Query: Does the union have an ethical duty of nonmaleficence?

      Does administration have the same duty?

      Certainly, as the agent of the university, the administration has a duty to do no harm to the university. Does the union have such a duty with respect to faculty?

      And if they fail that duty as they certainly have?

    If you mean the administration, that would depend on the nature of the harm. As to the union, I’m not sure they have such a duty. Thus, the question.

    The candidates probably read UOM and decided UO and our Beamer provost are not for them….
