Don't know how long you've been at the U, but those individuals you are maligning have worked their way up to the positions they hold. They earned them. It's a huge (unfounded) assumption to say they were appointed because they would do what the admin wanted. I have extensively collaborated …

SIU needs to "right-size" big time. It has over 200 academic programs. 200!!! It's peers and aspirational peers have less than 100. It simply cannot continue to try to be all things to all people. Judicious and informed "pruning" should have taken place decades ago.
