Glenn Poshard Announced as SIU President
The guy might be a Democrat, but I think he'll be a good choice for the school. He's got some parliamentary skills from his days in the Illinois Senate and U.S. Congress, he has taught at the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute, and usually has his head screwed on straight. He was definitely far more pro-Second Amendment and pro-life than George Ryan was during the 1998 campaign. On top of that, all of his degrees are from SIUC, so he should know the place inside and out.
Hopefully, he will be wiling to drop or modify the graduate fellowship programs that discriminate against white males and "overrepresented" minorities. I doubt it will happen, but I will note that anything can happen at SIUC.
