Awaiting speculation/information about how this changes the reorganization of the UMass system.
Governor Deval Patrick today named five new members to the University of Massachusetts Board of Trustees, including former chairman James Karam, in a broad shift that could realign the balance of power on the committee.
Those who decried Wilson's “power grab” shouldn't laud this one. It's the same thing, done at a higher level. And I don't have a problem with this one anymore than I did when Wilson proposed studying organization. Like the previous moves by Wilson, I'm taking a wait and see. Interested to see Deval's plans. (iWas, iIs, UMass) And I'm sure everyone is looking forward to studying Deval taking on another “big” issue.
