Presidents giving back to universities

September 22, 2009 - Per Peterson
I blogged last week about MnSCU employees receiving bonuses and that they should donate those bonuses as opposed to keeping the money, and some university presidents in the MnSCU system are doing just that, so it’s only fair to shine some positive light on them. A story released by the Associated Press this week said Minnesota State Moorhead President Edna Szymanski said about a third of her $9,000 bonus went to taxes and she plans to split the rest between a scholarship program and funds for a new campus wellness center. The AP story also said Winona State University President Judith Ramaley has promised her $12,000 bonus to the university’s campaign for a new wellness center and that Larry Lundblad, the president of Central Lakes College, said he plans to give his $12,000 to programs for students and staff, including replenishing a fund to help students with emergency needs. It’s good to see these university leaders are putting their bonuses to good use and to better serve their respective institutes of learning.
