This is to wish good luck to Dr Robert Moulton (also known as Dr Bob Moulton) in Ras Al Khaimah Higher Colleges of Technology on the second anniversary of his securing his prestigious appointment of not just one but two colleges (sometimes jokingly referred to as universities).
The link below is to a discussion of Dr Robert Moulton's characteristics as a leader, as those who worked with him in New Mexico State University fondly recall his greatest achievements and share their heartbreak over his departure. The piece below speaks for itself. Nothing has changed since he came to RAK.
Here´s hoping that HCT do some basic internet checks before hiring the next generation of directors and provosts. After all, there is so much good stuff out there about the present incumbents!
For those of you with too little time on your hands, here is a brief selection of some of the choice comments contained in the link...
Bob Moulton, who served as interim provost under outgoing Interim President Waded Cruzado, is leaving New Mexico State University, the school announced Tuesday.
No loss. Moulton was all about Moulton. VP Howard's crack university communication sent out a press release today saying Moulton was off to oversee a university in the mideast. Five minutes later, after an angry Moulton read it, Howard's comm department sent out another email explaining CORRECTION Moulton would be overseeing TWO universities in the mideast. So there!
Moulton is a poor excuse for an educator and the College of Education is much better.
The students he allegedly helped should consider themselves fortunate because he wronged so many with his inept policies. He looked down on faculty and staff and did not respect the tenets of a sound academic institution - it is about creating a learning environment and it is not about turf wars and bureaucratic "charges" that Bob was so fond of espousing. Someone earlier wrote good riddance - that was speaking the truth.
Dr. Moulton hasn't been allowed to think for himself in some time thanks to Cruzado and the rest of the so-called admins. Recently he promoted and gave tenure to a less than deserving faculty member. This faculty has received repeatedly bad evaluations from students, an extremely poor research record and is prone to bursts or anger and physical threats. Yet, since said faculty kissed the right admin. asses, they slipped his less than adequate package into the "Bob sign these papers. No. Don't read them, just sign," pile.
Good luck in the UAE!
