The Yes Men pose as members of the Iowa Regents’ efficiency review committee

tierThe Yes Men delivered a satirical speech today at the Iowa City Public Library wherein they posed as representatives of the Iowa Regents, as well as the private consulting firm that is doing the University of Iowa’s “efficiency review” (called TIER — “Transparent Inclusive Efficiency Review”).

The action was in response to a lack of faculty governance and divisive decision-making on behalf of the Iowa Board of Regents. Just recently, for instance, the Regents dissolved the campus-based search committee for the University of Iowa’s new school president and outsourced it to another firm that will handle the interviews.

According to UI Lecture Committee member (LV columnist, and mischief-maker) Kembrew McLeod, the presentation was put together with the help of faculty, staff, adjuncts and students.
