Just kidding - we all know UO's top administrators never face the consequences of their decisions - that's for us little people. The student union is stuck with the bill, and the students who supported this for genuine reasons now look like dupes or worse. But FWIW her $40,000 raise from Bob Berdahl in May puts her at $233,000 plus an apparently UO paid family trip to the Rose Bowl - not that I'm jealous. Scott Carlson of the Chronicle of Higher Education has more on the EMU debacle here. Excerpt:
Robin Holmes, vice president for student affairs at the University of Oregon, has led the renovation project. Her office released a statement Friday night, following the meeting.
“We have heard the concerns that the manner of contracting with the communications services firm was a misstep and we agree,” the statement said. ”The UO will not implement all of the recommendations made by the communications firm.”
Ms. Holmes did not respond to requests for an interview.So now RBI strategies is a "communications services firm". And Orwell was a "noted children's author". BTW the comments on Bojack are pretty good:
"Now I'm not going to stand here and tell you we didn't take a few liberties with our academic budgets. We did."
