    2012-2013 UFF-FAU ADMINISTRATOR SURVEY RESULTS

    Filed under: Documents, Home;

    Summaries of 2013 Admin Survey Written Comments

    President M.J. Saunders: The 268 comments she received were predominantly negative, many of which called for her resignation. The comments reflect the general sentiment of her quantitative poor ranking where 82% of respondents rated her poor or below average. Her mishandling of academic freedom, the Geo Group scandal, and grazing a student with her car were frequently cited criticisms. Even Saunders supposed success—SACS accreditation—came under attack. One faculty member writes: “She repeatedly cites the SACS report as her major achievement, but SACS was only a success if you do not consider the high costs: her focus on credentialing has made the university paranoid about educational innovation lest her credentials police knock on our office doors. The worst bureaucratic regime.” If anything, the comments reveal a completely demoralized faculty that had felt under constant assault for the previous academic year. Many of her previous supporters have expressed disillusionment with her performance. One representative comment notes: “I had high hopes for President Saunders when she first arrived at FAU and was one of her staunchest supporters. But it has since become apparent that she is simply not ready for prime time. The debacles over the stadium naming, supporting academic freedom, aggression toward students, and refusing to listen to criticism, all demonstrate a deep character flaw. Her paranoia about the SACS review reached insane levels. Her temper and anger toward faculty and deans is legendary and extremely unprofessional. She has made a mockery of FAU by cutting herself off from the people and realities that exist outside her office and coterie of close sycophants, thus turning the 3rd floor into a bunker or fortress.”

    Provost Brenda Claiborne received 210 mostly negative comments that also mirrored her low quantitative evaluations where 70% of respondents ranked her either below average or poor. Similar to comments on Saunders, many called for her resignation. Many of the criticisms made about Saunders are also repeated here for Claiborne. Unlike comments critiquing Saunders authoritarian personality, however, Claiborne has been mostly critiqued for incompetency and simply following the university president’s ill-advised orders. A fairly representative comment follows: “Provost Claiborne has very poor management skills. She isolates herself and is inaccessible even to the deans of largest colleges, who are her direct subordinates. Her inaccessibility has left others with confrontation as the only available option. She makes inaccurate public statements and gives directions at the very last minute, providing inadequate time to carry out her requests and then changes her mind. Her repeated missteps have created utter demoralization and a widespread lack of confidence in her leadership.”

    Associate Provost of Northern Campuses Eliah Watlington received 16 comments. Many questioned who Watlington is and what she does. Those who have encountered her consider her personable.

    Associate Provost of Broward Campuses Anthony Abbate received around a dozen comments. Many questioned his lack of presence and communication skills. One praised him for keeping the Broward campus open.

    Dean of Graduate Research Barry Rosson received 138 comments. Similar to every comments of the last few years, Rosson has been critiqued for creating a bureaucratic nightmare with endless paperwork. A frustrated faculty member offers a representative Kafkaesque complaint: “The main purpose of the graduate college appears to be to create as much paperwork as possible and a never-ending sequence of changing rules and procedures that only seem to have minor effects.” Rosson particularly came under attack for removing graduate student stipends for non-teaching students. A faculty member writes: “His policy with removing graduate student stipends for non-teaching grad students is dysfunctional at best and suicidal at worst in terms of funding for the sciences.” Also, faculty repeatedly emphasized his need to better communicate with graduate faculty and graduate students. Many insisted that he resign and the office be closed.

    Interim Dean of Arts and Letters Heather Coltman received 180 mixed comments. About half the comments praise her for making the most under difficult conditions. A typical example follows: “Dear Coltman has done a good job in very difficult times. The upper-administration seems to dislike deans who oppose their views so it is unclear how more vocal Dean Coltman could be without being made to resign.” The other half of the comments see Coltman at as inept and at worst as a stooge for the upper-administration. One faculty member writes: “Dean Coltman appears to have no plan for the college, no agenda, and no ability to stand up to the ridiculous mandates that come from the Provost and President. In fact, that seems to be why she is in the position: because the upper administration knows that she’ll do whatever they tell her. She comes across in meetings as unserious and utterly unequipped to advocate for our college.”

    Dean of Undergraduate Studies Ed Pratt received 57 comments, which mostly praised him. In particular, Pratt’s ability positively compared against the general ineptitude of other administrators. A fairy typical comment states: “An administrator who is willing to make the tough decisions based upon sound research, listening to others, and working for the betterment of the university overall. Would make a more effective Provost.” Other respondents questioned the relevancy of undergraduate studies and its ability to focus the university undergraduate program.

    Dean of the College of Science Gary Perry received one comment encouraging him to stay on as dean.

    Dean of Nursing Marlaine Smith received two comments. One praised her. Another told her to appreciate faculty more than through awards.

    Dean Rosalyn Carter of the College for Design and Social Inquiry received 8 negative comments, many of which asked for her resignation. One faculty member writes, “Our Dean has created an atmosphere where faculty in some units do not feel support – either within the college itself or with university academic administration. That is, if we do not feel a policy made in our unit is fair or appropriate, we do not have any ability to question the policy without being made to feel like we are whining without justification or questioning leadership decisions that it is not our place to question.”

    Interim Dean of the College of Business Som Bhattacharya received one negative comment that questioned his ability to administrate effectively.

    University Libraries Dean William Miller received one comment that suggested he investigate personnel issues himself rather than rely on other administrators’ opinions.

    Dean of the College of Education Valerie Bristor received 6 comments. Half suggested that she need to be more present at the Henderson school. The other three suggests favoritism dictates her discretionary spending in the college.

    Principal Tammy Ferguson of the Henderson School received 10 comments. Eight comments praised her leadership. The other two suggested she needs to work on her communication skills.

    Dean Jeffrey Buller of the Honors College received one comment suggesting that we work harder for the university than his private business.

    Interim Dean Mohhamad Ilyas received 17 written comments. Most of them are positive regarding his administrative abilities. One critiques his administrative capabilities and another suggests he needs to promote research more aggressively.
