No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Mills College full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Mills students are wonderful: idealistic, diverse, appreciative, and motivated. The faculty are devoted to the students, and the teaching is generally of high quality. Some professors also have impressive research and publishing records. The commitment to multiculturalism, women's empowerment, and social justice is real, not window dressing.

Cons

While I understand that the administration is constrained by budget concerns -- finally being addressed, rather than covered up, as they were under the previous administration -- they have unnecessarily antagonized faculty by dictating to, rather than working with, us. They also have treated some long-time staff members badly: For example, when they laid off a popular staff member, they made her leave the building immediately, rather than treating her with respect and providing a transition for the students who depended on her and were devastated by her sudden departure.
