So the summer is moving along. The university is conducting some house cleaning, reshuffling, reorganizing and the like. One of the statements that I have heard is that the new administration will clean house. Firing people is pretty easy. Hiring competent people to replace them is a bit harder. Our fair university has often found it hard to do the latter. Our history in that area is spotty at best. What we can expect next month is a politically connected administrator more interested in how long the blinds in the dormitory has been up than the deeper issues of managing a university. And this is what we get, someone who has never been an administrator at a university. I haven't quite figured out which organization has the worst curse, CSU or the Chicago Cubs. Will administrative competence ever land at CSU?
