    Collective bargaining, graduate teaching fellows bargaining, sexual assault prevention, diversity, research funding, “leadership development” — it all sounds like academic administration jargon or gobbledygook — not much like what used to come to mind long ago when I heard mention of “the academy.”

  2. Genius says:

    “Innovation” and “Brad Shelton” are words not often found in the same sentence.

    • Steve says:

      Look, a pointless, anonymous ad hominem attack by a UOMatters commentator.

      • Anonymous says:

        It’s not ad hominem. The statement is meant to point out that Shelton is not known for his innovative mind and, therefore, perhaps should not be leading a discussion of innovation on this campus.

        Snarky…but not ad hominem.

        If the poster had said, “Brad Shelton doesn’t know how to relate to other human beings.” it would be ad hominem because that has nothing to do with his ability to present on innovation. For example.

        • Scienceduck says:

          I have no idea how innovative Shelton is, but the Innovation in his title is about managing tech transfer, not that he should be some mad genius coming up with innovative ideas for everyone else’s research program. Ad hominem or not, it was besides the point.
