    Re: Leath

    I've worked closely with Dr Leath and have a great deal of respect for the man and his vision for ISU.

    I'm not saying he's not a nice person but he needs to start doing a better job at winning over the public perception of him IMO

    This is a significant amount more important than either the VEISHEA or Bubu situations.

    Re: Leath

    President Leath is a great leader for Iowa State and the university is fortunate to have him.

    He also is one of a handful of university presidents nationwide to have a 100% approval rating from university employees. (Sally Mason has 54% by the way, one of the lowest ratings in the nation.) http://www.glassdoor.com/blog/top-25...ies-work-2013/

    The public perception of him is that he's doing a great job, you are confusing your ridiculous perception as the one held by the majority which is simply incorrect.

    Re: Leath

    I sat next to the Leath's on a plane ride from Dallas to Des Moines. It was odd that his wife was wearing a fur coat in a Dallas terminal. TCU women's basketball team was also in the terminal to come up for a game.

    Cool story, I know.

    Educational wise he's doing great. ISU is growing at a huge rate and some of that, sure, is to his credit. All I'm asking for is to stand-up for certain things but maybe I'm in the minority here.

    Geoffrey was an amazing president for Isu, and leath is a great replacement. The stupidity of some posters in this thread is not shocking.

    Or you know, maybe the students to act responsible when partying on a Tuesday. Or a player to avoid a potential bad situation. Oh wait never mind, were asking too much from "adults".

    Maybe it is making the correct call on both cases.

    Actually its more the opposite. The 04 recommendations included *more* on campus events because if youre on campus you generally arent causing problems. That was awesome for awhile until they moved the concerts out into the middle of nowhere. That just leads to people being at the large house parties near campustown (hunt st, where both the 04 and 14 'riots' began)

    What they should have done is ended the veishea "week" nonsense, made it officially a thurs-sun event, reexamined police procedure on breaking up large parties near campustown, etc. But it was clear from the start this 'task force' was a sham set up to kill veishea.

    Stand up for what exactly? VEISHA? It's not his fault that a bunch of ******* college kids decided to throw a riot for the hell of it. There wasn't another decision he could make. The actions of others put him in a corner, they are to blame, not him. To think otherwise is purely childish in nature.

    You're blaming him for Bubu? Bubu got himself in his own damn trouble. I'm not even going to get started on that line of thinking.

    Leath's job is to carry on what Geoffery started and last I checked, he's doing one hell of a job at it. ISU has never been stronger and future trends are showing that this progress isn't slowing down any time soon. Next time before you come to a public forum to voice your ridiculous complaints, pull your head out of your *** and find reality first.

    Underlined part should meet bold part.
