Iowa Board of Regents’ stunning lack of accountability

August 5th, 2016 · No Comments

When former University of Northern Iowa president Bill Ruud announced he was leaving, Iowa Board of Regents president Bruce Rastetter praised him for “great progress” and leaving “UNI in a stronger position than when he arrived.”

It remains curious why Ruud had to go.  Officially, the board didn’t fire Ruud, but his contract wasn’t renewed and that sends a message. Ruud’s graceful exit masks the injustice the regents did to him and UNI. Ruud’s departure is also another sign the board lacks accountability. <more in the Des Moines Register>
