Subject: Administrator review

A colleague here at UW-Milwaukee is seeking information for a committee
of the faculty senate which is formulating recommendations relating to
the periodic review of administrators in the university. His questions
are the following: (I'd be happy to summarize responses received from

Thanks for responding...
