Faculty members at Ohio University have objected to the $1.2-million
purchase of a new residence for the institution’s president, The Athens Messenger reports. More than 80 professors wrote an open letter calling the Ohio University Foundation’s purchase a “poor use” of money.
“At a time when student debt is spinning out of control, and the
funding of higher education is in crisis … it makes no sense to
undertake such lavish expenditure,” the letter states.
