I think what is (or is not) happening at CC right now is best characterized as:the whole place is in a state of pause,marking time, at best, until 2022. That is when the $50M Development Campaign being mentioned in recent buzz is apparently scheduled to kick off. Let's hope that happens and that $50M is enough to accomplish everything necessary to get Alma Matter fully competitive again in the Buffalo market and well beyond, to attract a 4-5 K member student body (at least), on a newly attractive campus with a fully staffed, well qualified faculty and a D-1 athletics program that is adequately funded for as presently established, and then for the long term development as should be part of the plan.

I agree with Greg on his last point. In BfloGriff speak that state of affairs has been referred to on this board as "stagnation". The role (or absence there of) of THE POWERS THAT BE sure is disappointing, to say the least. But I don't think the A.D. is fairly included as a P.T.B.. He has to function within the budget they provide to him. 2022 will, no doubt, be a make or break year for Alma Mater. Let's hope the P.T.B. are up to the challenge. It won't be getting any smaller in meantime.
