    Hey I’d like to spam everyone at your university about my cheap electric cars – how do I get permission?

    Hi Keith,

    When I was Senate President, the central admininstration and the VP for Commmunication in particular made it very difficult for me to send emails about important shared governance issues to the faculty, much less the entire university.

    I’m happy to see that you’ve relaxed that policy, although perhaps only for the purposes of spamming us all about track meets tickets?

    Please send me a copy of the new policy that allows you to do this.

    Nice writeup about Esteemed Colleague Brother Harbaugh in Chronicle. He is too modest to mention it here I’m sure.

    Perhaps they’re gone but today the link isn’t working – no free tickets available. Interesting that I did not get an email about this offer (checked all folders, including junk mail). Curious how you found it and why it was not publicized to staff via email.

    I would share a screenshot of the link page – which looks legit but no tickets available – but can’t seem to include a screenshot in my comment.

    On behalf of UO club running, we give a lot of shits. You’re an absolute jackass for this title and should perhaps get off the couch and consider running.

      My apologies. I’ve edited the title to say “No one at UO gives a shit about *Intercollegiate* Track and Field …”.

        The track meet last weekend was not an intercollegiate meet. It was the US Track & Field championships. The majority of athletes, I believe, were beyond their college years.

    At least I get to Airbnb my house during track tournaments. Beats the wage cuts my employer is giving me.

    • UO Matters says:

      Any truth to the rumor that Johnson Hall is going to start a faculty AirBnB rental program in lieu of COLA raises?

      • thedude says:

        What if they starting Airbnbing the pres’s house or tree tops to fund more salary increases?
