I'm not employed by the university in any fashion

By: crunchgodabruinknees



I have close connections to the university. I've had the chance to talk over dinner to several of the senior people involved at top levels in the matters concerned here and ask some pretty tough questions. 

Of course, hindsight is 20-20 on the keck-dean, but he also flat out lied to the provost and others. He was under scrutiny and discipline. It's easy for you to scream woulda-coulda-shoulda and ignore Nikkias's other successes without having to deal with any of the complex exigencies required in a multi-billion dollar organization.

Still name one university president who has been 1/2 as successful as Nikias--just one.

I'm guessing one sex drug f'up across a tenure this long and complex may be pretty good. People do wrong things that are hard to stop.

I know you would like to go back to the Von Kleinsmid days of simplicity--they are gone. The political, social and economic environment organizations operate within today are gnarly dude.
