That apology USC delivered to UC San Diego also included a $50 million payment in damages for taking UCSD’s Alzheimer’s program. This is a direct of Max Nikias‘ presidency, where he had a win-at-all-costs attitude on everything. He didn’t care about the ethics of taking the Alzheimer’s program. Or the potential for a lawsuit.

I already said a reader told … Continue reading USC Afternoon Notes: As The University Turns
