Not much of a post, just this:
The Tulane University board meets March 15-17 to decide whether or not to approve Scott Cowen's renewal plan for Tulane.
This plan, of course, calls for the elimination of the Engineering, and the elimination of Newcomb. All for no apparent reason, as Newcomb has an untouchable endowment of over 40 million, and 2 donors gave over $60M to Tulane, targeted toward engineering.
The fear that we might be next has caused the best and brightest in every department to polish up their vitas.
None of this was needed. Hopefully the board will see that provost Lester Lefton and president Scott Cowen were wrong, and both of these Yankee twits with no concept of history or culture will go back to being inconsequential blips on the radar screen.
If not, Tulane is gone. 1847-2006. RIP.
