President Bruininks Cuts Grad School Baby in Half

From OurCEO:

I am pleased to share with you my final decisions related to selected recommendations of the Committee on Graduate and Professional Education. A PDF version of this report is available on the Provost's web site:

http://www.academic.umn.edu/provost/reports/documents/grad_report062609.pdf

The document has been describe by one astute observer (twitter) as: "over the top new managerialism-speak."

There are other stylistic similarities to material that has issued from OurProvost's office in particular an over fondness for parallelism.

Fortunately, not everything has fallen into OurProvost's lap. Some of the loot will go to the VP for Research, Dr. Mulcahy. This is an improvement over the original attempt at a putsch by OurProvost.

You can't lose them all.
