Re: “College in Revolt

Wow! I was so relieved when I heard that the CR president resigned! That'll save a lot of people a lot of anguish.

Re: “College in Revolt

The CR swimming pool has not been fixed in HOW long now? The old and outdated (and in some cases broken) equipment in classrooms and labs has NOT been replaced, as was promised with Measure Q which was voted on in 2004. There are NO student services open on weekends. Note: At a College, the Library isn't open on the Weekends, even though there are plenty of weekend classes, and there are students who live on-campus in the dorms. There is one tutor (not even full time) for thousands of students and only at ONE of the numerous locations. The number of classrooms and locations with more technical equipment to install and maintain keeps increasing, but the technical staff department has not been increased (in fact, may have decreased). The number of classrooms and locations with furniture and floors and bathrooms to maintain keeps increasing, but the maintenance staff has not been increased (and may have decreased). There are many cases where many people worked hard together to formulate carefully-thought-out plans and recommendations, only to have them completely disregarded and ignored. Funds from different funding sources are being spent based solely on the decision-making of one individual, without any objective criteria. Policies are changed seemingly on a whim, with no input from interested parties, and with no communication whatsoever. Duties and responsibilities of different individuals seem to change from day to day, based upon whim, and without communication nor negotiation. Laws (Education Code) have been broken many times. Lies have been told many times. This list can go on and on! The problem is NOT just the survey results. We can FORGET the survey results and still have major problems to discuss. The staff and faculty are VERY serious about academics and education and it is exactly academics and education that are suffering at the hands of the current administration. And unfortunately the current Board of Trustees has been allowing it to continue to happen.

Re: “College in Revolt

Dr. Marsee IS a bully, and, as someone else mentioned, uses "Hitler" behavior. Not only were Drs. Bettenhausen and Davis REMOVED from campus (read the article) for trying to get some Truth out into the open (to the Trustees and to the Community), but also, Dr. Marsee threatens staff and faculty. Just last Thursday at a so-called "Open Forum," after one staff member asked Dr. Marsee a question, that person was then used by Dr. Marsee as an example of a person he "would not" want to have to lay off... Even though Dr. Marsee is the problem, it really is the Trustees who have been asleep at the wheel. As mentioned above, Bruce Emad had promised not to fall for this again, but these Trustees have certainly not lived up to their promises. Shame on them! They should be recalled! (Perhaps not all of them, but the Community should be hearing opinions from all of the Trustees, and has not heard from most of them.) Seems like they are scared of this bully, too, but I cannot imagine why that would be the case. They should get some tips from the people in Ventura.
