Uni New England goes the LBJ way

“The status quo in times of disruptive change is not a winning strategy,” says newly arrived UNE DVC Todd Walker. So, management is convening staff groups to discuss “what UNE should look like in 2025.”  The wider university community will also get a say through meetings, forums and online discussion.  This is very wise, people at UNE are sensitive to change and critical of plans they do not like. Last winter a staff meeting expressed no confidence in VC Annabelle Duncan over an academic restructure (CMM August 25).  As Lyndon Baines Johnson said, better to have critics in the tent and peeing out than the other way around.
