There was once a time when employers trained their own workforce, but colleges and businesses both embraced the scheme to offer vocational degrees so that students could pay for their own training. Colleges make money, employers save money, and students, and now taxpayers foot the bill.

Well, no not really-you're not likely to kill someone by walking in to him.

The "choice of words" is misogynist and completely inappropriate foe a university "official" . So, now we have two disgraced coaches running the university and the community couldn't be happier. And we wonder why young people won't stay in good ol boytown.

LOL you can't be serious Rick--when has the Vindicator ever approved of a raise for anyone?

I love college sports but let's be real--YSU Football never did pay for anything--there are actually only about 20 or so athletic programs programs in the whole country that actually make money.

Do these same documents explain that YSU faculty have the second lowest salaries and the highest workload in the state? Typical vindy bitterness--I don't have this neither should you--despite the fact you had to go to school six more years than me.

What nonsense. How about the roughly 25 million spent on athletic facilities over the last five years, the same years the university fired 15 employees and forced a concessionary contract on employees? Also, if you are struggling to "keep up" maybe you are playing in the wrong league and division.

From fiscal year 2008 to fiscal year 2015, YSU increased spending on academics by 2 percent — $76.5 million to $78.1 million. By glaring contrast, spending on intercollegiate athletics increased 46 percent — $9.6 million to $14 million.
The faculty union noted that spending on administration and finance in the last seven fiscal years went from $19.6 million to $22 million.
The message from the YSU-OEA is clear: the board of trustees has its priorities upside down.
