Business As Usual at the U?

Georgia Tech Confirms Tenure Revocation

Although there was no press release or news citation on this action, the double-dipping duo of Sainfort and Jacko has had their tenure revoked at Georgia Tech. This was confirmed today by the Public Relations Office at Georgia Tech.

Meanwhile at the U of M no word on a resolution of the problem. Perhaps - as in so many other cases here - we will just ignore this situation until the problem goes away?

Seems kind of hard to blow off tenure revocation as a trivial matter, but you know the gang in Morrill Hall - anything for a laugh?

Also having someone like this as a major player on a translational clinical research grant proposal might, ah, damage your credibility?

And how have those translational research center grant submissions been going folks?

Embarrassing Questions

President Bruininks waxes eloquent on good behavior, but apparently does not have the courage to do something about it. Maybe he should start start taking lessons from the football coach? ( Brewster's job is on the line and he sat down two players for the next two games. One of them is a star. Give the man some credit. )

"I think we need to put ourselves in the position of acting according to the highest ethical principles. I believe our people do that now and I believe our people will be doing that in the future as well." President Bruininks (Daily: 6-18-08)

Talk is getting cheaper by the year on this matter, Dr. Bruininks. How about showing a little backbone?
