Students make decisions about studying for careers with some facts, but far too few when the costs are so high. Ask anybody with a collection agency in tow and a degree and no job. When education was 80% state subsidized it was not a problem. It is now.

If a decision-making process is flawed and dysfunctional, decisions will go awry. Carly Fiorina ___________________________________________________

Whenever someone would walk in my office for a meeting I didn’t schedule, I would ask, “How much do you need?” The first response was always, “This is not about money it’s about academic excellence,” or “This is about a better working environment for faculty and staff,” or “This is about propelling the University forward.” About 3 minutes into the conversation “the ask” was made and I would say, “See, I told you so.”
