Carol Shows ‘Em How It’s Done

Not too long ago we lamented that the College was hiring yet another paper-pushing bureaucrat: a Title IX/Clery Act compliance officer. That said, perhaps blessings should be counted; were Carol Folt still the IP, she might be foisting a team of five Title IX adminstrators on the College. That’s what she is doing at UNC:

Now I have no problem with Title IX in its various manifestations, but compliance is a reporting function. One gets the sense that Carol is motivated by the desire to be seen doing something, rather than getting anything done. Also, consider that each of the positions being created has responsibilites that are already being fulfilled by other people at UNC. Is Carol just creating another “shadow organization” — a duplicative function that backstops other areas of the administration — a charge levelled at the College when McKinsey & Co. reviewed the Dartmouth bureaucracy a few years ago?

Addendum: Note the presence of a communications specialist in the mix of UNC’s new employees. Carol just loves PR.
