    They are just money junkies. Every year they need a bigger fix to get high. Instead of selling the parking, they should spend some time in detox.

    Appreciate the sentiment, but not sure it is applicable in this sense in light of how expensive tuition here is compared to other countries. Moreover, the privatization of peripheral services has long been the case for cash-strapped universities in the UK. And you can argue whether it really raises revenue + services in the longer-term and whether it will open up another cleavage of inequality beyond the well-appointed private universities and shabby and decrepit public universities.

    An alternate unbundled credentialing system could unburden students and State institutions of higher learning.

    So, do they fire the yoga instructors and diversity coordinators before or after they sell off all their student parking. (You betcher schweet [behind] they won’t be selling any faculty lots).
