He makes final decisions and doesnt look back.  That is a rare characteristic of U President types.

I think he has made a final decision about UND.  He will have trouble leading the troops in Grand Forks now that they know he has one foot out the door.  He knows that too.

I want a president that others are interested in but who would say - "thanks but I made a commitment here and they made a commitment to me and it wouldn't be right to leave after such a short time"

^^^       Very much agree. This will be abump in the road here in ND for Pres. Kennedy. He will not get the job. By letting the world know he is ready to bolt, he will be hit on again.  At the same time North Dakota is put on notice and he will lose support. Just wan't here long enough to do this.

Maybe he knows what is coming down the pike better than this board.  UCF would be a great job.  It is not as if he were applying to an XDSU.

In the upper world that Kennedy is in, if you don't move on you are a loser.

Kelley never was considered for another job for very good reasons.

Yeah I don't understand why anyone would be mad. UND isn't an apex predator for any position other than  the head coach of men's hockey. <-- ignoring the NHL here. 

Props to you for the use of "apex predator".

Anyone know if Kennedy's contract extends beyond June 30, 2018?

Quote

Bresciani’s past year at NDSU has been rocky, including the delayed renewal of his contract by the higher education board, which voted 7-1 in November 2016 to extend his leadership of the university until June 30, 2018, the same term as his fellow campus presidents.

Not sure, but I wouldn't think his contract wouldn't get renewed....

Really? Let's ask WH and S&D how they feel about him changing his mind.

A university president makes nowhere near the same money as gfhockey..........

If he takes the job he'd have the shortest tenure since Blackburn (litteraly our first president). Frankly I expected him to be here awhile considering he and his wife are relatively local. Still, I wouldn't blame him if he can actually double his salary. 

 

That being said, it's hard to me to form an opinion on his short tenure. He mishandled cutting sports (we won't cut any sports in my tenure...a few months later...jk) but he inheireted that problem from Kelley/Schafer and the ND budget shortfall.

Why do we want someone leading our University that doesn't want to be here?  You think you're getting his best effort or is he just waiting for the next best thing to come along?

Again I say about the salary..........

If you are plugging along in your cubicle, doing your job and making $15/hr, and some other company from a distance notices your potential and offers you $30/hour in a bigger and warmer cubicle, are you gonna say no, "I refuse to even consider your proposition "?

We should feel honored that our president was sought out by a much bigger university. He was the only one on the list without a phd. You know you are valuable when people seek you.
