Re: “College in Revolt

Mr. Emad and the Board of Trustees have very short, very faulty memories. Indeed, I was present at the Board meeting a few years ago when Kerry Mayer (then Academic Senate Co-Chair) did express the faculty's grave concerns about the Crabill-Bobbit administrative mismanagement--only to be lambasted by a furious Mr. Emad for daring to speak out critically. After President Crabill slipped from the Board's pedestal, however, the same Mr. Emad instructed the faculty that it had a professional responsibility to report serious institutional problems to the Trustees. Since President Marsee arrived, though, the Board has reverted to its blind, gullible support for the very CEO it should be supervising. And if Mr. Emad and his fellow Trustees had read the recent employee satisfaction survey with any comprehension, they would see how ludicrous is the claim that the dissent at CR is a union bargaining ploy. The faculty and staff at CR are not complaining about wages; they are expressing their dismay over an abusive, dishonest management style and their fear that the President's monomania is compromising the college's core mission. Unfortunately, the Board members and the President neither understand nor share the values of educators, hence Mr. Emad's absurd attempt to reduce a groundswell of protest into a simple matter of dollars and cents.
