University of Minnesota
Presidential Interview: Kaler on
moving money from administration
into the classroom
I’m in favor of it.
I haven’t had a chance to have conversations that would better inform what I have to say.
The (net) cost of education at Stony Brook is $12,000. I haven’t been able to get precisely what that number is at the University of Minnesota, but it is considerably more.
There are some economies that can be reached. There is more to be done. I am committed to two things: 1) Using a business consulting firm — one that has been used at Stony Brook, Cornell and others — to streamline business practices. I am also committed to using the best practices around the country.
I am convinced that we’ll be able to move dollars out of administration and into classroom. I will work very hard on that.
