No, he doesn’t…

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.

  1. Perhaps the fact that some people don’t make that distinction is exactly the education he provides. ;^)

  2. Must be a busy guy. I can hardly be in two places at once–Rosenstone is at 32 places at once, hundreds of miles apart.
