AAUP committee condemns UNI administrators' actions surrounding budget cuts


The continuing administrative issues at the University of Northern Iowa sadden me. When I was a student there in the late 90s, I talked to more than one professor who said one of the biggest reasons they were at UNI was because they treated their faculty well. Year-after-year budget cuts and some questionable (at best) actions by President Ben Allen and the administration seems to have all but eliminated that feeling of good will. UNI is currently seeking candidates to replace Allen, who is retiring, and I hope the new president is particularly skilled at mending fences.
