Re: “College in Revolt

I don’t really know the players or the politics here, but as a community member I have to admit that I’ve been more than a little concerned about the CR trustees for a while now. The trustees are elected by us to watch over our community’s college. We “entrust” them with our college. That means, to me, that we trust them to do what is best for teachers, staff, students…..well, the whole college. But in news articles over the last year, all I hear is that the people on the ground working at the college every day (i.e. the teachers and staff) see real problems with the way the new president is doing things and the trustees respond with statements like “We support the president.” I don’t get that. Why have the trustees taken sides here? Isn’t their job is to safeguard the college and all its employees, not just a new president from Southern California or New York or wherever he’s from? Why don’t they recognize that they may drive our college right into the ground by “supporting the president” and not listening to the other employees who have lived in our community and worked at this college for a lot longer than this president? I don’t get it. To me, it seems like the trustees think of themselves more like stockholders in a company rather than public trustees. They need to be reminded that CR is OUR college, not theirs. Come on, guys. Step up and get concerned for the college not just for its president.
