UO students ask "Where’s our President"?

5/22/2013: From UO’s Public Records log:

President’s Calendar
Requester: Ekblad, Nicholas
Organization: The Commentator
Initial Request Date: 05/22/2013
Status: Requesting/Reviewing Records
I would like to request the president’s calendar from January 8th 2013 to the present

President Gottfredson’s public records office made me pay $108 for an earlier version, and wait 2 months. Pdf here. Let’s see what sort of hoops Gottfredson makes our students jump through, and how much he redacts. The Student Press Law Center has an interesting post on efforts by students at other universities to get this information on their presidents. The Oregon Commentator post explaining their request, and commenting on the sad state of UO’s public records process, is here: http://oregoncommentator.com/2013/05/22/what-will-gottfredson-hide-this-time/.

    Someone ought to ask for Bean’s official calendar during his “sabbatical”. Wonder if it shows the conversations with Pernsteiner about him taking over as interim Pres, if the board fired Lariviere.

    Wow, they even want to see his calendar. That means your calendar and mine are public business too. Why not our health records? Our web browsing logs?

    This guy should seriously fuck off.

      They want to see his official calendar, not his personal one. It’s well established that this is a public record. It would be like asking for your class schedule, office hours, and the official meetings you went to. No big deal.

    Seriously…he is not anywhere near the presence of Lariviere, and he got there by being around campus connecting with people. Where is this guy?
