  1. Dear Wa –

    Why are you blaming Dr. Darr for appointing Dr. Dimino to her post, when we – the students – were told either (i) the entire faculty or (ii) almost the entire faculty (I forget which as, by now, it was so long ago) voted for her to assume that position, even specifically requesting that they be allowed to vote for her to be put into that position? We all know this, and that’s an example of a reason we think your blog is self-serving BS.

    Signed,

    A student experienced with your BS.

  3. Dr. Dimino was appointed to the director position by Darr after the faculty supported her efforts to get a low level job in student services. The faculty only knew about her appointment as director after the fact.

  4. What does any of this have to do with finishing up freshmen year going into sophmore year, still being labeled a freshmen. Which screws over financial aid for people who actually need it. And Dr. Domino is freaking awesome!! who cares how she got her job.

  5. Dimino is not to be trusted. She has her head so far up Darr's behind that she can't see the light of day. It's obvious that she is a terrible judge of character given her frienship with a certain member of the 13th floor who has no scrupples whatsoever!

  6. The school needs a qualified person as the Director of Student Services. Dr. Domino is not qualified and that puts the school and accreditation in jeopardy. If the provost had conducted a proper job search, Dr. Domino would not have been appointed to the position. It matters if the students want an advocate that is neither figuratively or literately "sleeping with the enemy".

  7. Who ever wrote this all needs to come foward and stop being a coward. Without you we have no hard evidence, all we have is a blog with statement that seem to be backed up....we need you to come forward and talk to the students directly or the news or NOTHING will ever get done about this all!

  8. While it's true that Dr. Dimino may not be qualified for her position, her qualifications have no effect on her job performance. I have dealt with her personally, and I know for a fact that she actively meets with students and other directors to work out student concerns. She truly cares about the students at HU, and when a student grievance is brought to her attention, she does everything in her power to solve the issue. The students don't care about how she got the job.
    On the posts regarding credits and money, however, I agree wholeheartedly.

  9. It's not personal, I'm sure she is a perfectly nice person. However, to meet the requirements of accreditation, staff must have proper experience and credentials appropriate for their positions. She does not.

  10. You will pay for Dr. Dimino's promotion in your tuition money and it may cost you a job in the future. Consider that the extra money to pay her salary cost HU a grant writer or a faculty position or a corporate faculty position or lab equipment or computer equipment. Yes, money is that tight. If the allegations of a relationship are true, that means the provost put his feelings above your education. Dr. Dimino was already working in student services (albeit briefly), there was no need to promote her. There are other student services staff that have been at their jobs for years and thus, are far more qualified than Dr. Dimino. They should have been promoted instead, even if they don't have a personal relationship with the provost. The faculty never voted to give Dr. Dimino a director position at HU, only to give her a job in student services. I've heard the lie from Eric that we voted to give her the position, but it just that, a lie. The best lies have a grain of truth.
