It's about time someone started looking into the actual numbers instead of just repeating the BOT bs. The university is full of experts in finance, accounting and budget planning, and the BOT is comprised of political appointees with no experience in higher ed or managing a huge institution, yet everyone accepts all of their preposterous decisions. Benchmarking and studying comparable institutions is standard practice in higher ed and in business, yet YSU administrators are clueless to the practice.

Well said Tiger! Of course the BOT doesn't understand how real universities function either.

And how exactly does it make sense to allocate cuts based on each division's share of the total budget? Obviously, academics is the highest expenditure--it's a university (allegedly anyway). Wouldn't it make more sense to prioritize, then make cuts accordingly? Oh wait, if they did that academics would get hit even harder, since it seems to be the lowest priority.

Abe, georgej is just repeating the sentiments of DeSouza that we are sure to hear every week throughout negotiations.

"special interest groups"? You mean like the faculty and staff that run the place? Wouldn't the BOT which is made up of two Bruce Zoldan cronies and a bunch of Kasich appointees, also qualify as a "special interest" group? And for the record, the last contract was more than a "pay freeze" it was a pay cut when factoring the enormous jump in health care contributions, even though the health care reserve is FULLY funded.

Knightcap: I agree. It's amazing how the deficit numbers seems to change magically overnight it seems, and yet no one questions this. If in fact, they've gone from 6 to 10 million shouldn't some reporters be asking some questions? Two of the three presidential candidates even noted this discrepancy in their presentations(the ones who were not chosen) and Gary Miller in particular seemed generally confused as to how they arrived at that number.

Soon there will be more parking lots than buildings downtown. Seems as though someone ought to be looking into this CIC business.

Good question--the number changes daily. Also, its a structural deficit not an operational deficit which both of the un-chosen presidential candidates pointed out.
