A university's goal is to prepare student to productive white-collar employees in various industries. I've never seen a Ph.D program that focuses on the specific point. Ph.D are great and they prepare you well for focused, narrowed and research type careers, but 95% of students will pursue opportunities outside of the three points that make Ph.Ds great.
The key skills needed to being a University President are understand how to rally the people around you to making students successful. The requires extreme charm and charisma for the ability to market your University programs to potential employers. Also it requires the ability to support and understand students goals outside of their academic life. Lastly, the ability to recognize trends for where student will have and create opportunities.
I'm okay with having a non-traditional candidate as finalist. To really make a huge impact you have to be an outside of the box thinker. Traditional thinking has left many American universities falling behind the rest of the world.

I know $30,000 isn't a large cost, but the Banner System that YSU spent about 10 million should have the functionality for that type of information.

People want to work, but clearly the nation doesn't have many jobs at this point.

(C.Amill, B.Morrow, G.Thronton) are all great men that have helped me to become great. They all coached together for the New Bethel Braves. Now, they have moved to the next level of coach. May their success continue.

I respect everyone comments from all different angles. We need to work together and create a solution. Youngstown is the heart beat of the Valley, if the student in Youngstown continue to fail this will effect us all in some form or fashion.
