    Asked Gov. Haslam to veto SB1912. Explained as a graduate of the UY system diversity is good!

    Actually i asked Governor Haslam to sign 1920 to hasten loss of Federal funding, and damage UT reputation with foundations and other institutional funders the Governor is counting on to elevate UT to a top 25 research university.


    Perhaps that was a tad sarcastic. But it is important for the Governor to have a record of the likely outcome of supporting this bill. No reason Haslam should be able to claim surprise when UT becomes the laughing stock of higher ed and research.

    It’s really important that the Legislature not micromanage the diversity programming at our public colleges and universities. Nothing good can come of that.
