  1. Emphasis? Maybe. But the position also weighs heavily in hiring decisions, budgets, appropriations, etc… Besides, someone with a good business acumen tends to make pragmatic and sensible decisions.

  2. Just as I advocate for politicians to be business people, not lawyers, this appears to be another position at a university best served by a business person.

    • I believe this position’s emphasis is on academics. These applicants could easily fill the bill.
