He also has other duties? Isn't that what the "or" is for?

He is the Chancellor over the entire UT system and each University in the UT system has its own President. All the Presidents kind of report to him and kind of don’t. Each school’s board of trustees has a fair amount of power. The NC system is similar.

Apparently he writes scathing letters and posts them on

The Chancellor is over the entire system of Texas A&M university system which is a bunch of locations

The System is a statewide network of 11 universities; a comprehensive health science center; eight state agencies, including the Texas Division of Emergency Management; and the RELLIS Campus. The Texas A&M System educates more than 151,000 students and makes more than 22 million additional educational contacts through service and outreach programs each year.

So in summary, the Chancellor is the President's boss.

Figured the well traveled rascal was using some colloquial dialect . . .

and I assumed that he was the big boss and his title was equal to being their university President..

and now I see that Ta&m has both a Chancellor and a President.

Confusing!

Yeah I thought the same. Odd. Maybe it's like having a King of England and a Prime Minister.

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

Michael Young, President of TAMU was told in May that his contract would not be renewed. Early in September Young announced he was retiring at the end of the current school year.


Sounds like Young burned his bridge at some point in the past and now seemingly has nothing to lose. I don't think the Chancellor and President of TAMU are going to vacation together anytime in the future.

Some commenters use italics to indicate sarcasm, while others prefer the traditional ending of /s. Others eschew any indication of sarcasm as a dilution of wit. Before down voting somebody, ask yourself, "Could this be sarcasm?"

Wow.

"I understand your disappointment" at my words.
"I am deeply sorry. "
"I handled this badly. "
"I am very sorry."
"I bear sole responsibility. "
"I profoundly apologize. "
"With my deepest apology. "

That's a keeper file right there. You never know when you might need to borrow some ideas from a great grovel-letter.

Signed, Joe Biden


Wow. Good for him.

I’m nowhere near his level of success and I doubt I could muster anywhere near that level of humility. And if he’s retiring, all the more impressive that he would own his poor judgement. He could have just walked away.
