GET AN ADMINISTRATION WORTHY OF OUR STUDENTS.

The editorial board of The Northern Star expresses its lack of confidence in the vice president of finance and facilities.
[Eddie] Williams heads the Finance and Facilities division. According to the Finance and Facilities website, he’s responsible for bond revenue financial operations, Budget and Planning, computer support services, the Convocation Center, Employee Services and Human Resources Development, Institutional Research, Materials Management, the Department of Police and Public Safety, and Parking Services, among other things.

As someone who supervises these departments, he should know what is happening within them and he should know if there have been any breaches of ethics or protocol among the employees working in them. It’s his job.

Several employees from one department under Williams’ purview have been put on administrative leave for various allegations.
Among the departments reporting to Finance and Facilities are the University Police and Materials Management, both subjects of recent investigations.
