Today’s Question at MPR lets you get into the driver’s seat at the University of Minnesota:
If you ran the University of Minnesota, what three things would you do to make it better?
Let us know! I’ll be posting a few responses, like this one from “Jim”:
1. Eliminate sport scholarships
2. Increase class offerings. Classes taught every year vs. every other year, so students can graduate faster.
3. MAKE PROFESSORS TEACH!!! When I was a Grad. student there, the College of Biological Science professors were expected to teach ONLY 1 quarter class every other year. That was 30 hours of classroom time every 2 years. Imagine the education if the professors taught.
