Let me just make one minor change.

RE: Pres. Baker is a disgrace
That is why CEO's of companies report to a Board of Directors, and the President of NIU reports to a Board of Trustees. Usually folks in these positions are given the leeway to hire friends, etc as consultants/quasi-employees. If they achieve results, no questions are asked. If they fail, the "circumventing of the rules" are used as the grounds to fire them. Such cronyism has been occurring for centuries on every corner of the earth. No doubt it will continue long after we are all gone.

To get back to the point, I don't think anyone should be please by this report. We should demand more from the leader of our university. But in no way am I surprised.

RE: Pres. Baker is a disgrace
This does not look good. And, believing in consequences, I have to ask, what is the consequence to Baker. I don't think the actions described can be justified, and I am a strong opponent of paying for a wrong-doer's counsel! In my book, the Board should do something. Something swift and significant. Yet this seems to go totally under the radar?

Baker failed NIU when they needed strong leadership the most. He needs to go.

I always thought the culture at NIU was to do it the "Right Way".
So what did we get for $400,00? Show me the data. Increase enrollment?

Spent a million dollars on 4 employees.
Thank goodness FSU agreed to send us to slaughter for 2.5 million.
Baker: Make some calls and ask alumni for more money.

These kind of Chicken Little, "the sky is falling" pronouncements always crack me up. This great University has been around for 122 years--it ain't going nowhere and is nowhere near done.

I don't believe the university will be done, but he does need to go. This type of trash will see no donations come from me until cleaned up.
