UO now offering 21% for retention raises

10/18/13. For administrators like Robin Holmes, and coaches. And of course we’ve got millions for deadwood administrators. Another million for Sharon Rudnick and her consultants. $2.4M for the Portland White Stage lease. $350K a year to rent the Presidential Skybox at Autzen from Rob Mullens. $500K from academics to pay for Matt Court bonds. $2.8M for admins on the “tenure reduction program”. Millions for “strategic communicators”. And now it seems Scott Coltrane has budgeted another $400K to top off the $1.8M the academic side has to pay for the Jock Box. So far this year they’ve spent $17K on “Engraving Services”. WTF?

In a few weeks UO Controller Kelly Wolf will release the itemized listing of how much Gottfredson spent on consultants last year. Rumor is that it will be astounding.

For the faculty, sorry, not so much.

    If they show the pictures to the AAU, then UO will be out and probably should be out. Why can they produce expensive, flashy videos for the Athletics Department but present research like this?

    The UO admin should be called Principal, Vice-Principal, Assistant Principal, etc. and be paid market-based salaries of Lane County.

    UOM I vote for this as post of the year or perhaps the short lived Gottfredson tenure?

    At least some student athletes get laptop computers to use that are engraved with University logos.

    Engraving services? Maybe they’re requiring all admins to get U of Owned tattoos.

    Engraving will be new for a new tombstone in the historic cemetery.

      Yeah — for one, that he intends to snooker the gullible into voting for the policy of Academic Freedom and Freedom of Speech be split in two, and then hopefully that will reduce some of ‘the noise’.
