CIO Don Harris
Harris is one of the few UO VP's to have ever undergone a performance review, I believe in 2010. It did not go well. Jim Bean kept him on anyway. Then in January, while Bean was on sabbatical, Lorraine Davis took the opportunity to fire Harris and run an open national search for a replacement. She did this successfully, hiring Melissa Woo from UW-Milwaukee, who starts in September. Meanwhile Harris has been given the usual JH sinecure, $206,484 plus benefits and no job responsibilities until his contract runs out Jan 31, 2013. Expensive, but my take is that if it hadn't been for Davis taking over during Bean's sabbatical we'd have been paying his salary forever. Letter and contract here. 8/15/2012.
