Harrisburg University hires another administrator

The Central Penn Business Journal reports that HU has hired an "associate vice president to manage its growing list of university centers." Did they hire more faculty? Did they hire someone to fix the retention problem? Did they step up programs to help disadvantage students? Nope, they hired another BS administrator. Is there no end to the incompetent leadership at HU?

  1. How can we comment on this? Really folks? What in the hell does this position have to do with "...offering academic and research programs in mathematics, science, and technology designed to meet the needs of the region's youth, workforce, and businesses, and to expand, attract, and create economic opportunities in the region." In order to do anything like meeting the needs of the region's workforce, blah, blah, blah.... HU must remember that STUDENTS come first. Hello???? Did anyone hear me????? STUDENTS MUST COME FIRST, or else get the word University out of the name of the institution. University = Students. Fix the student problem and everything else will follow suit. Bad retention, bad enrollment, but no - let's hire someone that is going to bring ZERO value to the most essential element of the the HU mission statement.
