Kennedy vs donors... again?

I know several faculty on both sides of the political aisle that likely cheered. MK made few friends at UND and it has more to do with his lack of tact, transparency, and just general leadership than it does budget cuts. People can understand budget cuts. However he did so with the grace of a blind surgeon using a rusty machete who ignored everything his nurses told him. 

I was in GF that day the Regents voted 5-4 to take MK off UND's hands. Not one person I talked to said......"That's a shame he leaving".

You just described the Kennedy Administration in one succinct sentence! Well done! :)

I don’t think you could pick anyone more out of touch. 

But he knows what the out of touch Facebook trolls want!

She's generous with the $4M for 2/3 of the scoreboard.

Serious question - She said she was done contributing with Kennedy still there.  How did the scoreboard get done?

Was it committed before she said that or does she consider Engelstad foundation money a different pot vs what she referred to?

She said she wouldn't contribute to the university. 

She continued to contribute money to a private hockey arena in Grand Forks.

well - the Kennedy barrier is gone.  Let's hope she wants to prove a point by writing a check to the university.

She's probably working out the details right now. 
Just deciding what building she wants her name on.

HPC II would go the furthest, IMO.

Do it KEM.  Just for spite, donate 100M to UND and make sure you make a point you are doing it because Kennedy is gone.  UND will gladly take your spite donations!! :D

Be careful what you wish for:  cue the SJW crowd demanding the reinstatement of a certain defunct hockey program if that amount happens.

Weren't they looking for $65M to fully endow WIH? That leaves $135M to play with.

Welcome back women's hockey.
