The University of Minnesota Board of Regents has unanimously elected Stony Brook University Provost Eric Kaler as its 16th president. Kaler has accepted the job, which will commence on July 1, 2011. More to come.
Provost Eric Kaler laid to rest rumors that 388 classes in the Arts and Science program were being dropped, and that numerous adjuncts were being replaced by graduate teaching assistants.
The SUNY budget was passed a week ago, and despite a 2.9% budget cut for all schools in the SUNY system, Provost Kaler said he was pleased with the decisions made in Albany, as he had previously informed the Deans of Stony Brook to expect a 4 to 5% decrease in the budget.
