Happy Anniversary to Me

I just realized that it was exactly one year ago this week that I started this blog. The first topic was the petition to the administration, asking that they make sure not to increase our teaching pressures during the cycle of budget cuts.

Unfortunately, they have never offered a formal response. Do you think they ever will?

In the last year, I have spent a lot of words complaining about the unresponsiveness of our administration, and that continues in my posting today.

It is an unfortunate theme of our university's condition. Is there something wrong with us so that we are unable to have effective collective governance? Is it our current chancellor and provost or have things been like this for decades?

I hope that the next year will bring happier blogging, but then again, if I wanted a happy blog, I might have signed my name !!!

Happy Anniversary!

I have enjoyed your blog all year. If you want to celebrate it we are having a potluck at my house this coming Friday May 5 to mourn the end of another school year.

You, Lake Winneblogo, are invited. (you can wear a mask).
