By Sarah NaylorThe following is a guest post by Sarah N.
Naylor, a research fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.
This post was written in response to the news that Mizzougas admission rate fell below 50 percent for the first time in the last two years.
It was originally published on November 30, 2017.
Naylor is a PhD candidate at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
This is the story of a state that has been caught between its most powerful academic institutions, the state university system, and the political machine.
When I was at Mizz, we had the University’s president and I, who had a very good relationship with him, but at least in my experience he did not have a political agenda, because he did have the job of running the university, and I did not.
I felt the responsibility for that, but I also had the freedom to run it.
I was a faculty member.
I had the faculty’s full support.
I got to pick and choose which decisions I made.
When the university started, I took a job as an assistant professor at the college of public health.
That was an incredibly powerful job, because I got the opportunity to work with some of the very, very best minds in the country, who were the ones who did the original research that gave us the data to support our recommendations.
I think that is the key.
There is a very powerful dynamic there, because it gives you a very strong incentive to take a hard look at what is going on in your state.
When we started, we were not on the map.
We were not well-known nationally, and yet we were the number one school in America for the best part of the last century, so I was very proud of that.
Mizz was very lucky.
But we were very lucky that we were also very smart and very good at what we were doing.
We had a pretty solid academic reputation.
We also had a really, really strong political reputation.
But as we went on, our reputation began to decline, and our academic reputation began, as well.
I mean, you look at the number of articles that have come out in the past 10 years, and it has all been about Mizzos failures, not successes.
Mazz was not the only state that had this problem.
You had the New Mexico system, which had the worst public university system in the United States, which we had a good academic reputation, and we also had, I believe, the best public university in the world, in Arizona.
It is very hard to get the right balance.
Mobs and policies, we did not really have the right policies.
It came down to a combination of all of these things, including the way we were able to recruit the right people, the way that we did everything we could to attract the right faculty, the people who would work for us.
But at the same time, we have a very solid academic record, and also a great, very talented, very smart, very diverse community.
We have a wonderful history of attracting top scientists, leading scientists, and leading researchers.
There are lots of things we do well.
The system, however, was so broken, that people did not trust the university to do the right things.
When you have an institution that is so weak, that you are unable to attract good people and people with the right political agenda to do their jobs, and then the people are very, particularly, unqualified, you do not want people in that position to succeed.
So you had to work to fix the problem.
I am not sure if it is possible to fix it.
We did have some success in getting a lot of good candidates to come here, and some of them were very successful.
They were good at their jobs.
I do not think that this is going to be the end.
We need to make some changes in the way our institutions are run, but we also need to try to do what we can to attract more talent to our state.
