And the athletics budget continues to grow-- YSU student fees devoted to athletics rank in the top percentage of ALL Ohio universities!
Oh, and as far as an investigative report, don't hold your breath.

That committee includes representatives of the administration and all of the university’s unions. That committee agreed to a health care recommendation, which the faculty union rejected, Cole said. - See more at: http://www.vindy.com/news/2014/oct/23...
What Cole DOESN'T say is that Administration representatives outnumber faculty and union reps on the committee and always vote in a block. The devil's in the details...

What difference does it make that Biersdorfer is "a public employee"? Clearly Bertram wrote this one.

A one percent raise with a four percent increase in health care premium? How is that a raise?
October 20, 2014 at 8:54 a.m.
1 percent! How dare they. Its not as if they are doing one of the most important jobs there is, and it's not like the cost of living goes up way more than 1 percent or anything.

What is there to "misunderstand" about $2 million dollars taken from employee salaries transferred into the general fund to be spent on whatever these clowns want?

More knee-jerk unexamined crap from the anti-union vindy. Try actually comparing salaries by sector, not by region, as any economist would do, and try factoring in the ways in which the health care premiums result in huge net pay cuts despite modest raises that don't even match the cost of living let alone inflation. And as far as YSU goes, try actually researching how much "public" money goes into those salaries, especially when state support is what, around 20 percent? Geez, Talk about class warfare...

Can't the Vindy and local "business leaders" just pick the president like at YSU?
September 29, 2014 at 10:27 a.m.
So, the president who repeatedly stressed how important faculty input would be in selecting the provost, ignores the recommendations of the faculty and appoints someone who didn't even apply for the job---off to a great start coach.

Talk about clueless micro-managers. A BOT that wants to be involved in all hires and promotions, including faculty? Do these people have any clue at all how universities actually work? They should be replaced before they do any more damage.
