SENATORS DANIELSON, HOGG & SCHOENJAHN ARE OBSTACLES TO UNI PRESIDENT SEARCH TEAM PROGRESS

9-19-16

Greetings, State Senators, Danielson, Hogg and  Schoenjahn, Regent Mulholland, UNI President Search Team Members and all—

Vanessa Miller reported in the 9-17-16 Gazette some of the manners in which state senators Danielson, Hogg and Schoenjahn are fighting and attacking the Board of Regent’s and the university president selection process. They are obstacles to progress who want folks to disregard how UI President Harreld has already improved performance at UI. 

Numbers in the following website show improvement made under Harreld, and they have not been refuted or even challenged.  If any of the 3 senators claim to have better numbers, let’s see them!!  Meanwhile, the search team must figure out how to bypass or overcome the senator’s obstacles to progress.  

PRESIDENT HARRELD'S LEADERSHIP IMPROVES UI's PERFORMANCE

Iowalive net workers are concerned about the behavior of the 3 senators, so added them to the following table, that will be further filled out and released as appropriate.   Below the table is a link to an unrefuted integrity ranking of 50 state senators, including the 3 who did not  rank very highly and who strongly favor selection of a status quo UNI president.   

Any search team member claiming to have ANY numbers for the table is asked to provide them—or Iowalive’s will be the best numbers there are, by default.

THE NUMBERS IN THE FOLLOWING TABLE START REVELATION OF UNI PRESIDENT SEARCH TEAM PERFORMANCE

Awareness--Integrity Ranking of Iowa State Senators

Search team members should find the contents of the following website of interest as it places university performance in perspective of student interests, number and amount of graduate job offers, which is a first.   Team members will serve students best by thinking in terms of the number and amount of graduate job offers when evaluating UNI president candidates.  This would also be a first!  You can expect Iowalive net workers to prepare a similar table for UNI president finalists. 

University presidents can have such tables prepared, if they wanted to.  What is stopping them??   Will the next UNI president prepare such a table?
