It is nothing more than a pecking order and it dumb.

Hamid must be replaced and it was a poor decision to hire him, a mistake.

Everybody makes mistakes, and it is evident.

You can fix it, but it is going to be a very difficult task.

Also, the members of the board of elementary education should be replaced at the same time.

It needs to be done.

Correction:

It is nothing more than a pecking order and it is dumb.

There should be an edit function to correct mistakes.

So, far it seems they are complaining about the presidents have their toes stepped on. Too bad. If they are honorable, responsible and not abusing their power; they have nothing to worry about. The credibility of tax evaders and double dippers is low on my totem pole.

MSU is going to be vastly effected by these changes as well as all of the other smaller colleges. Many reasons that out of state students do attend is because of the tuition is cheaper. This is a small state with a limited amount of college age students, so the answer is not to drive away out of state students from coming to our state! Lost revenue to help our universities as well as the cities that these universities help support.

WA, MSU was greatly affected when they stuck a bloom on it and called it a university so people could lie and say they were graduated from a university. You complain all the time about cost and yet you want to pay tuition for out of staters who then leave? Those students COST us money. We do have a finite number of students who reside in ND. At least the House voted to get rid of the plane at NDSU and the AG's plane along with others and have the state get control of that expenditure.

Having obtained two degrees from MSU, I think I do know a bit about it. Do I know about the inner workings of the last couple years? Probably not. I do know they went WAY over budget on some ridiculous heating system. I do know that calling a college a university does NOT make it a university. So, WA, what do you know about MSU?

The article has so many factual and misleading statements it would receive an F if analyzed. Just one example where quote reads "manage and operate the institution". The real document reads: "The authority to manage and operate the institution". Quite a different meaning. It goes on to provide the president the authority to delegate as necessary to ensure proper management and operation of the institution. What more does a president need?

One could go on and on but the article is full of lies and half truths simply because of a political desire to prevent oversight of institutions and make them accountable for the taxpayer dollars they spend.
