This sounds encouraging

UConn names new president. UConn’s a good school that’s been getting better and better. This woman sounds like she has the experience and talent to keep that progress going.

    You are an optimist, Chris.
    Her focus doesn’t seem to be on academic excellence for undergraduates. She’s talking about boosting research (why? for faux prestige?), civility/politics (self-imaging) and worst of all, increasing graduation rates (likely code for coddling underqualified, underachieving students.)
    Also, the fact that her gender, in this day and age, is receiving so much attention likely means — like with Obama and race — that not enough attention was paid to her qualifications and agenda, or lack thereof.
