Tag: Allan Gilmour
Sometimes overpaid, overly powerful, over egoed individuals can cartoon themselves in a single line. Mary Sue Coleman's comment during a discussion on consolidation just struck me as humorous. from the Ivory Tower:
"We are market driven," Coleman said. "If we are offering a degree that nobody wants, we drop it."Uhh yeah, but Mary sue? If you eliminate ALL "Non Market" elements from the program, could you still say that?
Right. I thought so. But the chuckles don't stop there. WSU president Allan Gilmour says there's not much "clamor" for consolidation.
"The alternative (to autonomous universities) is a czar, a commission in Lansing," he said, adding he didn't think any of the business leaders in the audience would want politicians running their companies.
Oh heavens no. Not politicians. In fact I agree.
But Mr Gilmour? They pay to play. WE pay to play. So maybe you ought to swear off public assistance entirely and for the benefit of M.S. Coleman and yourself become TRULY autonomous, so that you can attain TRUE market status.
Ask your economics departments how that will work for you.
And carry a laugh prompt card for use as necessary.
