The U of Iowa has a new president

His name is Bruce Harreld. Less than three percent of faculty who responded to a survey think he’s qualified. He will be earning $590,000 a year.

You can read more at the Chronicle of Higher Education , the New York Times , and Slate . Harreld’s job talk and answers to faculty and student questions may be found at YouTube. Many Iowa faculty may likely be found working on their exit strategies.

Michael, you may find this piece entertaining, in a grim sort of way.

Thank you, unknown. I’m watching now.

I’m amazed to see how much higher education has changed for the worse in my student-then-professor lifetime. It’s unspeakably wrong.
