      I always maintained that UT runs on the good-will of the Staff. The Staff are the true backbone of The University! On the whole, they are hard-working, dedicated, professionals who try to do a good job and usually succeed, thus freeing the Faculty to teach and conduct research, and assisting the students to accomplish their goal of completing their degrees.

      Wondering why no administrative assistants/associates or custodians were interviewed. They seem to be the 2 largest staff groups on campus.
