GRAND FORKS—The comment by emeritus professors Omer Larson and Robert Seabloom on the increase in the number of UND administrators was well taken ("UND enrollment hops while admin population soars," Page A4, Feb. 25). Had the retired professors not so restrained themselves and had they gone beyond the administration of former President Kendall Baker, they might have concluded their letter by using more forceful words than "seems quite excessive."
GRAND FORKS — What a remarkable juxtaposition of headlines, all examples of the artful way that UND administrators have of professing one thing while saying and intending another. “UND architecture: The past informs the future” was the striking headline in the Fall 2013 issue of UND’s Alumni Review. For added emphasis, the headline was followed by a quote from architect Frank Gehry: “Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness.”
