UNC paid $45,000 for president performance review the university doesn’t have

The Greeley Tribune: The University of Northern Colorado in 2014 spent up to $45,000 on a consultant to assess President Kay Norton’s performance, but UNC no longer has those records.

UNC entered into a contract the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges in spring 2014. The purpose of the contract was to assess and report on Norton’s performance as president, according to documents obtained via a Colorado Open Records Act request.

The UNC Board of Trustees in a Dec. 19 response to a list of student demands, which included the demand to fire Norton, cited the 2014 assessment as evidence of Norton’s strong performance.

It’s unclear whether the assessment was positive, as UNC’s response to a records request for it said there were no such records. The Tribune is awaiting response to a letter of inquiry regarding the records and the protocol that saw the records disappear within two years.

But UNC on Wednesday did provide the contract with the outside consultant.
