The Daily D’s Shoddy Trustee Coverage Continues

The Daily D‘s roundup of Smith’s election this morning is, well, I’ll let you look for yourself. In particular, there are a few interesting quotes from Wright as well as Chair of the Board of Trustees Bill Neukom ’64.

One thing I would like to correct, however, is William Schpero’s (reporter for the paper) characterization of bureaucratic growth: “In the past, Smith has also been critical of alleged growth in the number of administrators at the College.” There is, unfortunately, nothing “alleged” about it. According to a 2006 analysis by McKinsey & Co., between the years of 2001 and 2005 the college had a net gain of 83 administrators.
