No opinion of CEO

Pros

Generally easy going management, it's easy to work here (con: and not ever think again) Expectations from above are achievable, can even be limiting (con) Beautiful geographic area, lots of outdoor activities available

Cons

Inadequate academic/professional collaboration Management does not really promote research and progressive ideas, but certainly pays mouth-service Good-old boy network of university leaders (old, white, conservative men): case in point new university president Small, slow town, boring if city-livin' appeals to you Homogeneous demographics- 80% white, hard-core religious Christians, very conservative

Advice to Management

Take some well calculated risks, eg Hire newer, more dynamic management and professors Spend more money to support research Pay professors more
