Dunn received his doctorate in educational administration from the University of Illinois in 1991.

He graduated from Illinois State University with a master’s in administration and foundations in 1983, and the B.S. in education in 1980.

"I hope the duede hits the ground running, making $375K/yr."

What do YOU think is a fair salary for one who must oversee over 15,000 students and 2,000 employees on a 140 acre campus with a physical plant valued at $320,000,000 and an endowment of over $200,000,000?

Huh?

How much, in your carefully considered, fully-informed opinion?

Yep, credentialism is supreme in the lala land of public education for a university leader who has never had a real job in the private sector.

"in the lala land of public education for a university leader who has never had a real job in the private sector."

"real job"

So, then, no public sector employment ever qualifies as a "real job?"

And every private sector job is, by its very nature, superior to every public sector job?

Who do you think educated and prepared all those private sector job holders?

All those research scientists and hedge-fund managers and design engineers and mathematicians and physicists and chemists and doctors and lawyers were educated and trained in the private sector?

(Where do these people get these koooooky ideas?)

"I'll do it for $75K/yr."

Do what, exactly?

Sit in an office? Go to meetings? Sign stuff?

Perform whatever functions you imagine are part of the job?

(Would you even have a clue where to begin?)

All these college administrators, especially the presidents, are vastly overpaid. This character from Kentucky will be a millionaire at public expense within three years of attending meetings. He is not one in a million; bureaucrats like him (and his predecessor) are a dime a dozen. One of these days an enlightened (and outraged) public will realize that.
