Most expensive most over rated university: University of California Berkeley. University of California (UC) picks the pockets of Californians, foreign, out-of-state students clean. UC shouldn’t come to the Governor or public for support.(The author has 35 years’ consulting experience, has taught at UC Berkeley (Cal) where he observed the culture & 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 $50,600 tuition students that displace qualified Californians from Cal. 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 (M Krupnick Contra Costa Times); ranked # 70 USA best universities Forbes; tuition to Return on Investment drops below top 10; QS academic ranking falls below top 10; only 50 attend Birgeneau all employees meeting; visits down 20%; absence Cal. senior management control NCAA places basketball program on probation.
It’s all shameful. There is no justification for violations by a steward of the public trust. Absolutely none.
Birgeneau’s irregularities continue. Governor Brown, UC Board of Regents Chair Lansing must do a better job of vigorously enforcing stringent oversight over Chancellor Birgeneau who uses the campus as his fiefdom.
