Now that's just plain dumb

This from The Chronicle of Higher Education:

In a move designed to save $2-million without cutting any jobs, Kean University will eliminate 38 department-chair positions, The Star-Ledger reported. Those 38 faculty members will move back into classroom teaching at the public institution in New Jersey, and their administrative duties will be assumed by "executive directors" and "program coordinators." The restructuring, which has been strongly opposed by the faculty union, will also eliminate majors in educational psychology, graphic communications, and mathematics education.
