Craigslist Ad Satirizes the Corporatization of the University of Akron

 

Craigslist Ad Selling UAkron

 

The ad was placed by someone who is obviously incensed by the increasing corporatization of the university that has been reflected in the decisions made, without faculty input, by President Scarborough’s administration.

About two hours after it was posted, the ad was removed by the Craigslist administrators.

I would like to note that I have no reason to believe that the design or placement of the ad is attributable to anyone in the leadership of the AAUP chapter at the University of Akron. The ad was sent to me by a friend who came across a link to it in a news feed of items related to higher education in Ohio.
