Dean Frawley

I put this comment in its post, so that it wouldn’t get lost. Maggie writes:

Prior to CCAS Dean William Frawley’s arrival at GWU only 3 1/2 years ago, he had served 23 years in various administrative positions at the University of Delaware. Hardly a “fly by night”. The Hatchet [2/16] reported that, “This year’s CCAS dean search will be the fifth for the head of a GW school in the last two years”.

At the Board of Trustees meeting the previous week, SJT was quoted as saying, “It is a good sign for GW”, and that he “would not be surprised if the trend continues at an increasing rate as GW becomes increasingly recognized”.

I am wondering what other Hatchet Bloggers think about this “trend”. Do they:

[1] agree with SJT, that it is a “good sign” for GW, or

[2] worry that there is a serious problem with the administration at the top, in that these highly qualified individuals are not receiving the incentives to stay within the GW community or the opportunity to eventually work their way to an even higher administrative position?
