In the Business section of today’s Star Tribune, Neal St. Anthony writes about the chancellor of Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU, the administrative body that oversees, among others, my institution):
Rosenstone, a political scientist who is the former dean of the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Minnesota, now educates more than 200,000 two-year and four-year students at MnSCU’s 32 campuses across the state.
Except that he doesn’t educate any of those 200,000 students. He administers the system that employs the people who educate them.
I submit that this is an important distinction.
