Where’s Earl? Part 2
by Silence Dogood

Last October, I was looking up someone on campus. After I found what I was looking for, I did a search for Potter just to see what would come up. I was surprised to see the response that came back:

Just for fun I recently went to the other six MnSCU universities to see what would come up if I put the name of their university President into their directory search engine. The results are shown below.

At Bemidji:

At Metro:

At Mankato:

At Moorhead:

At Southwest:

At Winona:

As you can see, all of the websites look very different. However, each one of them found the university’s president. A phone number was listed for each of the presidents. For five there was an office address and for five there was an email address.

It is surprising that the president at SCSU, a person who has been president for more than seven years, couldn’t be found then and still can’t be found now by the university’s search engine. Based on the results from the other six MnSCU universities, this makes Earl H. Potter something of an outlier. Clearly, he doesn’t want to be found.
