I am absolutely not shocked by Duquesne’s treatment of Ms. Vojtko. I am employed full time at a small, very expensive liberal arts school ($100,000 a year expensive). I don’t clear $25,000 a year and I haven’t had a raise in the four years I’ve worked there despite stellar reviews and working my ass off. The head of my department, an administrator, just purchased a $375,000 home (he had no qualms crowing about it in the office). If you think that any university gives a shit about non-faculty, the people with out Ph.D. trailing behind their names, the people who keep the wheels turning, you are sadly mistaken. I’m sure they sent out a lovely bereavement email in Ms. Vojtko’s honor.
