Foul Stench: Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad Law Center Offers Buyouts to Tenured Crooks!
Excellent News!: On April 14, 2014, Staci Zaretski posted an ATL entry labeled “Yet Another Law School Is Offering Buyouts To Its Tenured Professors.” Check out this epic opening:
“Today has been quite the roller coaster. Layoffs here, layoffs there, rescinded offers everywhere. It certainly looks like the legal profession has a case of the Mondays.
To cap off this day of negative news, we’ve got word of yet another law school that’s offering buyouts to its tenured faculty. Yes, tenured faculty, oh my.
Which law school put this offer on the table, and how many professors are expected to take it?
Nova Southeastern Law, whose rank is not published because U.S. News is far too kind, sent letters to all of its full-time faculty members back in March to announce the buyouts. The school hopes to cap acceptances of the offered buyouts at 20 percent of its tenured faculty.
The school has unique eligibility standards for the buyouts, according to the Daily Business Review:
To become eligible, professors must achieve a “point” rating of 60, which combines age and years of service. For example, [Bruce] Rogow is 74 and has taught at Nova for 40 years, so his score is 114.
The faculty has until May 25 to decide whether to take the buyouts….” [Emphasis mine]
I am smiling from ear to ear as I type this sentence. Yet another ABA-accredited pile of garbage is in financial trouble. If you feel any sympathy for these bitches and hags, then you are beyond pathetic. Just think of all the lives that these cockroaches have RUINED over the course of several decades.
Now, read Zaretski’s brilliant closing:
“Also on the bright side, the Nova Southeastern law profs who decide to take the school’s retirement offer don’t even have to travel down to the state that doubles as America’s nursing home. They’re already there.”
Pig Bruce Rogow can eat dinner at 4:30 pm each night, in his own home. I don’t imagine that the swine even has the common decency to thank the taxpayers for supporting his sorry ass for the last 40 years.
Other Coverage: The Daily Business Review published reporter Julie Kay’s piece, “Nova's Law School Offering Professors Voluntary Buyouts,” on April 14, 2014. Take a look at the following excerpt:
“After 40 years as a law professor at Nova Southeastern University, Bruce Rogow—who has taught at the school since it first opened—delivered his final lecture last week.
Rogow is one of dozens of tenured law professors to be offered buyouts by the school; Nova is also offering “voluntary separation packages” to professors at its Fischler School of Education and its Huizenga Business School.
The buyouts are an effort by the Davie-based school to save money; bring new, younger faculty into the mix; and, in the case of the law school, respond to a changing marketplace that has seen enrollment drop nationally. It is the first time Nova has offered buyouts to its faculty, said Robert Pietrykowski, vice president of human resources at Nova.
“It is not a stated objective or underlying objective to dilute the tenure track,” Pietrykowski said. “We are trying to reposition each of the schools to meet the challenges and opportunities of what’s a constantly evolving, higher education marketplace.”
Nova’s NSU Shepard Broad Law Center is not the only law school to offer buyouts to professors. Several law schools around the country, including Albany Law School, Vermont Law School and University at Buffalo Law School, have offered faculty members buyouts to shore up finances as enrollment continues to drop.” [Emphasis mine]
Does anyone else get physically sick when reading academic drivel/corporatese? For instance, what in the hell is a “voluntary separation package”?!?! In the end, the sewer rats are trying to force out the old farts so that they can replace them with younger, lower-paid “professors.”
Ranking: As you can see, Nova $ouTTTThea$TTTTern Univer$iTTTTy $hepard Broad Law CenTTTTer is rated as a fourth tier trash can - by US “News” & World Report. Of course, this doesn’t prevent the vile whores from charging $35,956 in full-time tuition and fees. What a tremendous accomplishment, huh?!?!
Average Law Student Indebtedness: US “News” lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the Nova $ouTTTThea$TTTTern JD Class of 2013 who incurred debt for law school - as $133,643. Furthermore, 84 percent of this commode’s 2013 class took on such putrid debt. Remember that this figure does not include undergraduate debt – and it also does not take accrued interest into account, while the student is enrolled.
Conclusion: It is CLEAR that the law school pigs are desperate. Then again, the pieces of excrement have milked the taxpayers dry for decades. In the process, they have FINANCIALLY RAPED an entire generation of motivated, young people. The academic thieves must be very proud of themselves. We know that these sociopaths don’t lose a wink of sleep at night, thinking of their victims. After all, in their warped minds, they are doing their students a public service. At least, these fat heifers are going to their final destination.
