1. It's simply poor leadership and BIG ego's that prevent them from listening to anyone that does not have a PhD. It's not about the students or the community (though they talk a good game) to those on top but all about adding to their CV/resume so they can move up somewhere else in 3-5 years.

  2. Simply poor management and leadership. Any student could see the obvious that there were fewer students on campus as the parking lots were never full like in 2008-2009.

    Simple investigative journalism would find that in the past few years the number and salaries of high level administrators ballooned while the low level facult and staff remained constant or decline in areas.

    No ex uses for not seeing the trends and not uncovering information those highly paid people say was masked. Their egos would not let them admit to a problem even when it was obvious. All they had to do was look and listen.

  3. More highly paid "administrators" and less instructors on the horizon at PUC.

  4. Mitch had nothing to do with it. It was all simply poor management and leadership at PUC, especially in the last few years. They offered classes that were mostly out of synch with classes at the Hammond campus. There were no lab spaces provided, so if you had to take a lab course, you still had to go to Hammond. Beyond one semester, it was difficult to get a full-time load of courses there.

    It was all dysfunctional politics and leadership within the PUC leadership team and faculty. It is a shame, as it is a great facility. I guarantee any other college/university, such as IUN or Ball State, or Ivy Tech could make it work. PUC simply lacks the vision and doesn't have the leadership skills to deliver the goods. The facility has amazing potential, which PUC squandered.

  5. More proof that the ignorant and uninformed are being used. You have no idea about what you speak.

  6. Never let history and facts get in the way of a good story that supports a fantasy. Hind-sight is always 20/20. 1) At that moment in time, it was a unanimous decision by both parties to take action (8 Dems and 9 Reps were on the Intelligence committee). 2) How many UN resolutions were authorized and ignored by Iraq?. 3) It was not only US Intelligence involved.

    The #1 job of the President of the US is to protect the citizens and interests of the US - in this he put himself ahead of those in Benghazi. Within a couple hours US assets could have intervened, but the order was never given (in what turned out to be a 8+ hour assault). Rome burned while the emperor danced.

    Keep drinking the koolaid Obama and a complicit media feed you.
