    To me, this looks like a person who is making way to much money and getting way to many perks, and the University is not getting what it is paying for. Dr. Fowle has been on the job now for over 2 years, and been unable to balance the budget yet, and this is the ONLY way she can find to to it? In the real world of employment, people like her would be looking for another place to work. That’s a quick way the University could save at the very least, $176,500 a year.

    I wonder why there’s only one option on the table? Why not do an early buy out of those that are close to retirement like Dr. Stewart did a couple of years ago? But since Dr. Fowle didn’t have thei idea, it’s probably not a good idea. It seems Dr. Fowle has a personal agenda of leaving some kind of long lasting mark on the University after she leaves in a couple of years.

    The University could by themselves a year of time if they are truly looking to save a million dollars and save a lot of people their jobs by simply selling all the houses on Hampstead and at 3311 Taft. Surely selling those houses could generate a million dollars and cut operating expenses used to maintain those properties. However since Dr. Fowle lives in the “Guesthouse”, that’s probably a bad idea because she might have to use some of her own $175,000+ a year salary for living expenses then. There are plenty of ways to trim the budget without effecting the lowest paid people on Campus. Trim the fat where the fat is, not where people are only making $19,000 a year.

    I don’t know how not burdening the incoming President out ways the hard work and built up retirement of so many of MSU’s employees. A university should not just be held to an academic standard, but also an ethical standard. While finances in business are of great importance, to not enter into business with a moral compass is just as irresponsible as the mismanagement of funds. I hope all involved in this decision making process take into account not just how this may benefit the university, but how this decision will impact many MSU employee’s and their families.

    All about more for the elite and less for the working class.
