    Between this and the Dooley years, I think UT wants everyone to hate them.

    Someone should ask them about the "Lady Vols."

    And people wonder why there is so much less faculty.

    Another layer of bureaucracy that funnels money away from academic instruction and towards giving cushy jobs to humanities majors.

    I honestly believe all of those bullcrap offices are an accumulation of job service for "bright" humanities graduates who found that there was nowhere to practice their "craft." It's something schools can point to as them being "pro-active" whenever something gives them bad publicity.

    These people enjoy the smell of their own farts, and are completely clueless as to how useless and frivolous they are. They think they're the glue of a campus, when 95 % of people on campus don't even know who they are or where they're located or what they do exactly. I'd argue 99.5 % of people on a campus don't know all 3.

    Meanwhile, let's get rid of tenured positions and just hire adjuncts for peanuts. 70k would pay for 6 to 8 classes taught by adjuncts a year, btw, and is more than what one new faculty track professor makes. It's as much as a humanities professor is likely to ever make these days.
