Why I’m bothered that the chancellor has silenced college bosses

Mar 15, 2013 by

Dan Klaich, the chancellor of the Nevada System of Higher Education, has told college and university presidents to be publicly silent about any misgivings they have with the proposed new funding formula that will divide up state money for the colleges and universities.

I was told this by a senior administration official at one of the universities, and several others in the higher education universe have confirmed it.

The new funding formula is an important issue — and one worthy of more, not less, public debate — because for decades Nevada’s process for parceling out higher education money has tilted north. A new formula should address geographic inequities and modernize our higher education system.

The presidents have been told that speaking out against the complicated and controversial new formula will carry severe consequences.

“If they violate his dictate, it is a firing offense,” the source said.
