And then go to the Board meeting tomorrow night.
Here are a few choice quotes from Chancellor Bruce Leslie:
Leslie said the constant fighting has sapped productivity but was part of the nature of a higher education institution that promotes free expression.
“Yeah, I get criticized, and yes, it comes with the job, and yeah, I take that seriously, and yeah, I take it personally,” he said. “It’s hard to sit up there and hear people saying the things that they do.”
Leslie conceded that faculty morale was suffering, but said those with a more positive outlook “are being shut out.”
“A lot of that’s being driven by certain people themselves and not the administration,” Leslie said. “There’s a lot of allegations, innuendo, and a whole lot of bad facts, bad use of data. I keep trying to remind people we’re doing amazing things here.”
Not exactly the words of a leader.
