Former Chancellor Rita Cheng Introduces “Budget Magic” at Northern Arizona State University

Flagstaff, AZ – Former SIUC Chancellor Rita Cheng, now President of Northern Arizona State University, unveiled what she’s called Budget Magic on Friday.  Akin to the program, Budget Shenanigans, implemented at SIUC during Cheng’s tenure, Northern ASU Provost, Laura Huenneke, applauded Budget Magic as “truly exceptional and indicative of resoundingly transformational leadership and vision.”  In response to unprecedented attacks on higher education in Arizona, and in the US more broadly, Cheng said, “If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.  If institutions of higher education were run more like businesses, then this place would run like clockwork.  Put the accountants in charge, that’s what I say.”
