This is the epitome of big government waste but its nothing new to CSUF who pays their president, Milton A. Gordon, $294,615 (not including benefits and perks). Gordon lives in a donated mansion on a sprawling estate in the Fullerton hills. Living rent free, he still commands a massive salary while students and taxpayers get stuck with the bill.
CSUF, like other universities, allows faculty top enter an early retirement program. The program allows full-time faculty to retire early and continue to work part-time. It sounds good on paper but the practice means we, the taxpayers, are paying extra for less. The retiree also immediately qualifies for FREE parking while other part-time employees must pay to park their car at their work.
The long list of CSUF wasteful spending continues to grow as does the cost of tuition. If CSUF students and their families want to lower tuition, they need to hold the CSUF administration responsible.
