President Crow and his henchman George Post have installed biohazard safety level BSL3 laboratories where government biochemists will be working with deadly organisms (e.g., ebola, anthrax, just to name two) right in the middle of over 60,000 students, and in the heart of a metropolitan area of c. 3.5 million people. They have also hired biochemists with little or no academic experience and blatantly discarded our top research scientist/ professors from the academic field. They started with the destruction of the Cancer Research Center and Dr. G. R. Pettit and have moved through the University grounds demoralizing faculty and staff as they go.

Is anyone as outraged as this blogger or The New Times about the treatment of this professor and the other 80% of the professors that president Crow has harrassed or intimidated to leave ASU!

If you haven't read the article go to or pick up a paper!
Good reporting job Megan Irwin!

Do you want this Covance lab in Arizona????

Arizona residents, students, and faculty at ASU! Don't sit idly by and complacently let the company COVANCE build a lab in Chandler. Clamorous protests drove them out of Alameda, California. They have a notorious unethical reputation. Covance was sited recently by the U. S. Department of Agriculture for 16 violations!!!

STUDENTS where will you find mentors to nurture your talent and guide you through tough spots? The poor caliber of replacement professors at ASU is such they do not have the credentials to become your mentors.

"MiCrow Management" - "MiCrow Vision"

Many resonate with the "MiCrow Vision" at ASU, but the "MiCrow Management" technique is NOT working. It has resulted in faculty and staff being increasingly marginalized and demoralized. ASU is on a terrible trajectory downward because people charged with running the institution are too afraid to speak to power. A CEO/President who cannot hear negative comments or alternate visions from his associates/mgrs/faculty IS NOT A LEADER and will run the corpoation/institution into the ground.

"Rise of the Corporate University - ASU?

The 'corporatised university' is obliged to respond to demands for greater accountability in relation to their financial situation, their core functions of teaching, research and community service and to document and report on these and other government policy imperatives, such as equity, minority representation and ethical considerations. With this obvious make over and blatant touting from president Crow of ASU to 'The New American University', (which is obviously to "CORPORATISE' it.....WHY is the ABOR, media, politicians and public not asking for strict ACCOUNTABILTY through its transition???????

The Politics of Arizona Higher Education

A formula the Legislature has used to fund Arizona's public universities has created a disparity in the amounts of money spent per student at the University of Arizona and Arizona State University. For every student attending the University of Arizona in Tucson, state taxpayers spend roughly $2,000 more than they do for those enrolled at Arizona State.
There will be no “successful vision” until ASU gets its own Regents. These feelings are not unique - they pertain, in a greater or lesser degree, to all who have given their devotion to academics, and those who have nourished their hopes and aspirations for ASU through extensive financial support.
