Laro's corporate orientation
speaks directly to his attitude
toward the Regents, which he
likens to a board of directors
framing policy for a large com-
pany.
"The University is more than
just classrooms, it is a $350
million a year institution - a
corporation, and there has to
be at least some structure."
LARO ADMITS that he has
at best a cursory familiarity
with some of the crucial issues
facing the University and the
Regents: commitment to affir-
mative action, faculty salary
disclosure, and budget priori-
ties in an austere economy.
He is also well aware of a re-
c u r r i n g criticism leveled
against the Board - that it
cannot acquire a feel for the
University's problems with
their monthly meetings, and
that they place too much of a
reliance on the recommenda-
tions of the executive officers.
