University of North Carolina Administration Grows Disproportionately Faster...with a Kicker

The Chronicle of Higher Education's Ticker points to a story coming out of the University of North Carolina. The full story is here.

It seems that the administration there has been growing faster than the faculty and student enrollment. Not news, right? Here's the kicker, though: "The university now admits that some of these people were in jobs that were not vital." And this is what UNC Chapel Hill Chancellor Holden Thorp has to say: "That's troubling.... We're here to educate the citizens of North Carolina and produce scholars that help North Carolina and the rest of the world with their problems, and if we are spending money on the administration, we are not spending money on that."
