Editorial board: Undressing the university address

President Kirk Schulz’s State of the University Address primarily focused on the successful side of the year, keeping a wide distance from any shortcomings the university is facing. This address shouldn’t be just a celebration; it should be a reflection.

WSU President Kirk Schulz concluded his third State of the University address on Tuesday doing what most bureaucrats do: telling little more than half the story.
