How’d you like to be so popular with your bosses that they offer to extend your contract by two years and then offer you a million dollars just to keep your job till the end of your contract?

That’s what the Purdue Trustees recently did with President Mitch Daniels. We chat about his new pay structure on this month’s conversation with him.

We also have a conversation about the University’s promotion and tenure policy.

President Daniels said last month the Trustees could pass whatever language they wanted regarding how much mentorship professors must do.

So why did they change to ambiguous wording that’s so open to wide interpretation?
