El Presidente: Who’s to blame for our deficit?

Even though Ilene Busch-Vishniac makes $400,000 a year and gets a free house, I feel for her. Like Obama still trying to stabilize the U.S. economy after Bush’s shitstorm term in office, Busch-Vishniac has to clean up the University of Saskatchewan’s financial situation in a way that is manageable, sustainable and cost-effective.

Ilene Busch-Vishniac, McMaster provost, named ninth U of S president

Although members of the search committee knew the identity of the next University of Saskatchewan president for about a month, few others in Convocation Hall on Dec. 19 knew the name Ilene Busch-Vishniac. Busch-Vishniac will be the first woman to hold the office, replacing Peter MacKinnon after 13 years as president. After such a long time with MacKinnon at the helm, and “since there’s obviously not a crisis,” she says she will take her time getting to know the school, as well as its students, faculty and staff. But she also says her outsider’s perspective will help.
