Provost Sullivan to Headline Iowa State Event on:

"Refocusing the Academy

in Light of the Current

Budget Constraints" [sic]

(Humorous find of the day...)

From Inside Iowa State - for Faculty and Staff:

The Faculty Senate's spring conference,"Refocusing the Academy in Light of the Current Budget Constraints," is scheduled for April 30 (10:30 a.m.-1 p.m., MU Great Hall). Tom Sullivan, senior vice president and provost at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, will headline the event. Executive vice president and provost Elizabeth Hoffman and distinguished professor John Schuh, educational leadership and policy studies, also are slated to speak.

I hope the Iowa State folks consider the actions of Provost Sullivan rather than his words...

For example:
