UMore Park...WTF???

How many millions is the U spending on UMore Park? Anybody know? Why is the U spending money on this when the Administration is planning to fire and furlough staff and faculty, raise tuition, and make cutbacks in instructional support? How does UMore Park relate to our mission as a land grant institution?

  1. That would be ten million.

    Not coincidentally that is about the amount claimed to be saved by furloughs. Although the actual amount will be a lot less given the disruption that this act of desperation will cause.

    The Strib has a devastating opinion piece on the fiasco, which I've cited in the Periodic Table:

    Sad. This administration does not have a clue.
