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.

Impressive.

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.
