Utah's higher ed system is a joke. There VP's and assistants for everything. Most of them do absolutely nothing but create paper work for those that teach. Several more simply have offices with titles but no real job because they have been "promoted" to get them out of the way. I have taught for over 20 years at the both the community college and university levels and just because an administrator has a PHD doesn't mean they have any common sense. What it means is that they can make a mountain out of a mole hill and whine like a little child when they don't get their way. Why is a person with a PHD even allowed to teach lower division classes? Most of them have the personality of a pot hole and look down at everyone that does not belong to their elite group. PHD professors should be hired to research. Schools should hire BS and ! at the most MS degree people to actually teach the classes; besides, you wouldn't have to pay them as much. Take UVU for example. Now that it is a university, they ONLY hire PHD professors and they aren't even a research school. How stupid! Paying PHD professors to teach community college level courses is like IHOP hiring expensive French chefs to make pancakes. I know I could eliminate 25 million from where I work and the students would be better served. The problem is if I ever said anything in public, I'd be fired before the day was over.
