Kendall Wallace has cashed the New Media!


When The Sun decided to chronicle the amazing transformation the University of Massachusetts Lowell has undergone in the past five years, we wanted to call it, “The Miracle at UMass Lowell.” UML Chancellor Marty Meehan cringed at the working title because Meehan, who was named to lead the university in March 2007, said every improvement from an ambitious expansion plan that includes new dorms, academic buildings, parking facilities and an $80 million Emerging Technologies and Innovation Center, to burgeoning enrollment has been strategically planned by university leaders. Five years ago, UML received fewer than 3,500 applications per year. That number today is close to 10,000. Enrollment is up 37 percent in those five years, with more than 15,000 enrolled. And that increasing number of students are bringing with them rising SAT scores. Miraculous? Maybe not. But impressive nonetheless.

The word on the street is, Wallace gets the lions share of the fruit borne by the inserts. So, when you thumb through this new media insert, gander at the sponsors and imagine the tone & tenor of the “ask.” To this day, Wallace is afforded heavy tribute. Of course, Wallace Wannabe Campi, squirms behind his placard, as the vig sails right over his head.

    A better question to ask, how long has it been since adjunct professors and other workers at the University have gone without a raise?

    All this money spent, I have to imagine they’d want better academics too. And you can’t do that paying peanuts for staff and teachers.
