The head of Washington State University's agriculture college is defending the school's research direction after a group of faculty members accused industry officials of wielding too much influence over research decisions. The Capital Press reports in a Thursday story that Ron Mittelhammer, dean of the WSU College of Agricultural, Human and Natural Resource Sciences, says the college is designed to help stakeholders solve problems while giving researchers plenty of freedom. However, Donna Potts - WSU chapter president of the American Association of University Professors - says she's received 30 complaints from faculty members who say administrators are more interested in catering to industry needs.Fucking idiot Potts thing is complaining that the university is DOING EXACTLY WHAT IT WAS INTENDED TO DO. Land grant colleges were created for the SOLE FUCKING PURPOSE of assisting farmers and the agriculture industry. WSU is doing its job. I have no idea what Potts thing wants. Presumably Potts thing wants WSU to spend more than 100000000000000000% of its time and energy smashing statues and exterminating Deplorables and torturing Muslims. Small Bravo to Mittelhammer for mildly defending his PROPER MISSION. He needs to be louder and firmer, but at least he's not abjectly surrendering to pure evil as most admins are doing now.
