Just when I think USC cannot go any lower, comes this factoid from a column by USC professor Ariela Gross:
“The noted ethical experts McKinsey & Co. have been on campus for two years advising the president on improving USC’s “culture,” among other things. Yes, you read that right: the consultants known for their role in the opioid crisis . . . and the centerpiece of this effort, called USC’s “Culture Journey,” consisted of surveys and focus groups to generate five words to articulate USC’s “values,” after which the university is hosting panels to talk about these values.”
I’m told McKinsey was hired pre-Carol Folt but she could put an end to wasting money with this dubious organization. And as the column notes, Folt and USC have not released any of the reports on the George Tyndall or medical-school dean fiascos, which the university promised would be made public.
- I’m getting tired of lazy takes whenever a coach signs a contract that it rules them out of contention for the USC job. P.J.Fleck of Minnesota signed a new seven-year contract. Is there any reporting out there that shows Fleck was a serious candidate for USC?
I haven’t heard him mentioned. But has anyone reported anything? So why does USC get mentioned with his new contract? Because everything has to have a “take” these days.
