Oshkosh Northwestern - ‘Backup’ jobs for 39 at UWO

Here is the latest bad press for the university. It is hard to believe all of the people who have backup appointments. I always assumed that this was something done only for academic administrators.

I wonder how many people actually take advantage of these offers--there have been reports of a few, so one would suspect that the system isn't as excessive as critics will claim.

Still, it is unfortunate for all of us without backup appointments to watch our school get abused for it.

I admit, I was surprised to learn who actually had back up positions. It would be interesting to know the actual back up positions, how many times they have been utilized and for what reasons.

Thanks for your comments. An answer to that question would take some real reporting, and I doubt the Northwestern will bother. Hopefully, some other journalists will! Miles, get to work!!
