They brought in two different candidates for the president’s job at EMU last weekend, and it looks like they are going to pick John Fallon, who is currently president of SUNY Potsdam. I don’t know a whole lot about him, but based on what I’ve read this morning, here’s what I think:
- According to the biography I link to above, Fallon has done good things for SUNY Potsdam. Or let me put it this way: the google search “”John Fallon” “SUNY Potsdam” controversy” yeilded no results.
- For one reason or another, Fallon seems to really be ready to move beyond SUNY Potsdam. He was also in the running for the prez job at Radford University.
- Fallon has a lot of Michigan connections, so it makes a certain amount of sense that he wants to come back here.
Anyway, let’s keep an open mind and see what happens. We know it ain’t gonna get worse….
