One thing is true - stressed out people make very poor stewards. Sure, the budget cuts are making things a lot worse, but they are probably only unearthing many problems that were there anyway. I remember it being contentious like that back when I went to school there in the mid 90s. I'm afraid it's part of the campus culture. It sure would be nice if there could be some trust and common interest. Transforming the campus into a true community with shared goals and celebrating diversity would be my vision for the future. Mutual respect among the admin folks and faculty and students, then between departments is so important too... But that just isn't the case now, nor was it when I was a student. The bulk of my professors were elitist, unapproachable and just plain snobby for the most part.
