Congrats to Gary Shapiro on becoming provost

(04/26/10 6:00am)

I want to take this opportunity to congratulate Provost Shapiro on his well-deserved promotion. In his article on Friday, University Editor Eric Dresden quoted President Ross, who said that having a high proportion of interims “puts academic leadership under ‘tremendous strain,’” a statement that could easily be generalized to include all temporary employees — after all, isn’t “interim” pretty much the six-figure version of “temporary”?  I am happy for Provost Shapiro, as perhaps his success means there is a chance for us too.
