FromDC2Iowa: A university's strategic communication
Excerpted from this post at FromDC2Iowa
A Modest Proposal to the Regents' University Presidents ... The University of Iowa wants "strategic communication" and is searching for someone to provide it. "The Vice President for Strategic Communication reports to the President and is the chief communication officer responsible for conveying the University's mission, vision, and values internally and externally. ... Until we find someone to fulfill the post, with its lengthy and intimidating Position Description list of responsibilities, I have a modest suggestion for how we -- and the other two Regents' universities -- might "convey the University's values." These are tough economic times. Tuition was increased 3.2% last year, 4.2% this year, and at least one Regent is advocating increasing it 5-6% next year. Out of state tuition for our professional schools is indistinguishable from that of the most expensive private schools.
