Division at Stevens Point

April 20, 2009

Linda Bunnell, chancellor of the University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point, is facing increasing criticism, but she says she is making necessary changes at the institution. The Associated Press reported that fund raising leaders have questioned the way she treats them, even as some on campus say she is spending too much time off campus trying to raise money. The situation has become so vexing, the AP reported, that the university has hired a former Wisconsin Supreme Court justice to mediate. Adding to the controversy: Bunnell has admitted to getting in an accident with a state vehicle after she had been at a club where she ordered three alcoholic beverages (but says she consumed only one). And a student group, seeking to draw attention to her travels off campus, put documents online that included her credit card number.
