University of California

Surrey, Canada

#1 Jun 7, 2011
(The author who has 35 years’ consulting experience, has taught at UC Berkeley (Cal) where he was able to observe the culture & the way senior management work)

University of California Berkeley Chancellor Birgeneau ($500,000 salary) has forgotten that he is a public servant, steward of the public money, not overseer of his own fiefdom (these are not isolated examples): recruits (uses California tax $) out of state $50,000 tuition students that displace qualified Californians from public university education; spends $7,000,000 + for consultants to do his & many vice chancellors jobs (prominent East Coast university accomplishing same 0 cost); pays ex Michigan governor $300,000 for lectures; in procuring a $3,000,000 consulting firm he failed to receive proposals from other firms; Latino enrollment drops while out of state jumps 2010; tuition to Return on Investment drops below top10; NCAA places basketball program on probation: absence institutional control.
It’s all shameful. There is no justification for such practices by a steward of the public trust. Absolutely none.

Birgeneau’s practices will not change. UC Board of Regents Chair Sherry Lansing and President Yudof must do a better job of vigorously enforcing oversight than has been done in the past over Chancellors who, like Birgeneau, see the university as their fiefdom.

Until action is applied by the Board of Regents to chancellors, like Birgeneau, the University of California shouldn’t come to the Governor or public for support for any tax increase.
