EVALUATION SCORES FOR FINAL 4 UI PRESIDENT CANDIDATES

9-2-15

Greetings Iowa State Board of Regents and all—

At least 1,600 words in the Cedar Rapids Gazette have described the attributes of the final 4 UI  president candidates.  No more words are needed.  It’s time for some numbers to show results expectations.

The following table presents Iowalive’s evaluation of the results expectation for the candidates’ based on Iowalive’s projections of  their impacts on the headers in the following table.  The table’s AS IS values  serve as baseline performance measures for the new president.  All of the baselines are in need of substantial improvement.  Only one candidate comes close to making such improvements. 

The choice is a no-brainer. Let the screaming for the status quo begin.  Get some good ear plugs and bouncers.  It’s time to de-elite the university. Students come first.
