    “reviewing compensation and classification issues”
    Remember Bob Dynes? UC didn’t do a very good job of policy review when it addressed these same matters in 2006.

    The SF Chronicle says the whistle blower on the Leite case initiated contact with UC via Fleming.
    Leite now works directly for Fleming… all part of the coverup attempt.

    Once a dirt-bag, always a dirt-bag, Graham Fleming on faculty furloughs in Fall ’09:
    (from the DailyCal)
    However, Fleming said effects of the furlough program on research are still unclear. “Faculty don’t work nine-to-five, five days a week,” he said. “My guess is what most faculty will do on a furlough day is research. It may even help research.”

    All the ethics/professionalism/harassment training is a total joke, of course. Cartoonishly obvious scenarios are presented, I just hit next slide as fast as possible. The institutional lip service paid to such useless garbage is painful to endure. Who do they think they are pandering to? No thinking human being who ever looked at this stuff could seriously think it would have an impact on behavior. Makes for a demoralizing work environment (but that issue is really one of death by a thousand cuts).

    I am sure there is a provision in the California human rights regulations affording senior female administrators the right to the services of a therapeutic toyboy at state expense, provided of course, said relations are consensual, with the nature and duration of the services specified and properly notarized. Needless to say safe sex practices are mandatory, with the aforesaid toyboy being required to attend a five-hour training session on the use of condoms.

    There does seem to be an interesting cultural change occurring, however. When I started, young, foxy secretaries were common among the male administrative crowd. It now appears that no one under 45 need apply.

  3. Bill R Says:

    There’s an “assistant vice chancellor for Research Enterprise Services”?

    That means there’s a “chancellor for Research Enterprise Services”, a “vice chancellor for Research Enterprise Services”, and an “assistant vice chancellor for Research Enterprise Services”. The lowest totem on the pole getting $185,000 per year.

    Plus benefits.

    No, wait, I lied. There are SIX “assistant vice chancellors for Research Enterprise Services”

    See http://www.berkeley.edu/admin/pdf/research.pdf

    Bill R: Sometimes you just have to laugh.

  5. In the provinces Says:

    So, how exactly was this guy being harrassed? Does getting his salary tripled count as that?

  6. Margaret Soltan Says:

    Itp: I know. Seems a strange use of the word harassment – unless, of course, he only got raises by, er, cooperating.
