You can never have too much sunshine...

Especially in Minnesota

From the Chronicle:

The University of Minnesota-Twin Cities was accused of conducting backroom activities during its last presidential search, in 2002, when it hired Robert H. Bruininks. The university decided to keep the names of its finalists private. Newspapers in Minnesota filed a lawsuit demanding the release of the names, and the Minnesota Supreme Court ruled against the university.

Ms. Reed [BoRe chair at the time of search] also asks: With public financing dwindling, now accounting for far less than half of some universities' revenue, how much does the public really need to know?

The public be damned, Dr. Reed?
