Several people at the University of Alaska are upset after the board of regents offered President Pat Gamble a $320,000 bonus, riding on the heels of layoffs and budget cuts.
My alma mater is cutting programs, raising tuition, and just awarded the president a $320k bonus. Bull-fucking-shit.
It’s not just UAA ftr it’s the entire UA system. I’m not saying it’s not bad but UAA’s campus has a chancellor (Tom Case) and then the president which is in charge of all the campuses.
I know. Other campuses are facing the same cut backs UAA is. Even more of a reason for him to stay at his current pay.
Yeah it’s definitely not a good thing to have happen. Kind of like the regents deciding we could only have money for an engineering building and not a parking structure at UAA. Our college system is way convoluted and complicated which makes everything more difficult.
I’m not saying the raise is right or that the cuts are right. I’m just saying our system is so fucking weird that it’s hard to get a solid read on anything.
True story. They sure spend a lot for not having much money. I’d like to see an audit done.
