iBerkshire's reports that "(Paul) Raverta joined BCC in 2005 as interim president and was appointed president in 2008."
So the guy's been at BCC a total of 6 years and he's already retiring?
This must be a joke, either that or Berkshire Community College is simply a way-station for college administrators wanting to retire with a fat pension.
One would think the brainiacs who do the hiring at BCC would get from those whom they hire for senior administrative positions a contractual commitment to stay at least a decade on pain of forfeiture of salary, bonuses, perqs, pension or all the above.
Note that no mention is made as to what Mr. Raverta's annual salary is from BCC nor how much his annual pension will be.

What the hell is wrong with you Heller? The guy is in his 60's, he's never allowed to retire? Someone would need to be coming towards the end of their career to get such a position, you can't be president of a college without a lifetime of related service in the field. BCC is a state school so he gets a state pension, he's worked at other state schools before. Why do you just attack everything? Such an asshole.

Leon Botstein became prez of Franconia College at age 23.
Meantime, why wasn't it made plain when Mr. Raverta was first hired that he would likely be retiring in just six years?
Why doesn't BCC hire someone who can stick around awhile?
Six years is nothing.
Jeff Immelt has been CEO at G.E. for ten years now and he'll likely be there at least another 10.
Just cause BCC is a state school does not mean it's stuck hiring people at the end of their careers.
From what school did you say you graduated?
