04/13/19 — J. Bruce Harreld and the 03/12/19 Daily Iowan Interview: Part 2. Updated 04/15/19.
04/09/19 — In advance of next week’s meetings of the Iowa Board of Regents, two very sharp reports from the Gazette’s Vanessa Miller. First, the regents are postponing their tuition hikes for next year, despite having imposed perennial hikes precisely to provide “predictable” tuition. (The idea of “predictable” tuition was in fact a deliberate perversion by the board’s president, Mike Richards, who substituted that concern for very real concerns from students and families that tuition hikes were announced at the last minute — as will again be the case this year.) Second, Miller provides critical context for the University of Iowa’s request to once again explode the budget for the new children’s hospital, after years of downplaying the school’s exposure to additional charges in the tens of millions of dollars.
