Tweet from our former president, Mark Yudof:
Congratulations Berkeley, nation's top-ranked public university per USNews. Five UCs among the top 10 publics: UCLA, UCSD, UCD, UCSB, UCI.
Time to stop the baloney slicing in Morrill Hall? Time to be honest, get real, and get back to the business of being a true land grant institution? Time for new leadership and not simply a continuation of business as usual in Morrill Hall by another internal hire?
Recall the hubris:
"Serving Minnesota Through World-Class Greatness."
"Starting in 2004, the University began the first comprehensive strategic planning process it had undergone in almost 15 years. Under the leadership of Provost Sullivan, the University community articulated an ambitious aspiration for the University--to be one of the top three public research universities in the world [sic] within a decade."
