The Valley Edition editorial "A Smart Course for the University" (March 9) is right on the mark. The commentary points out that, given the fiscal challenges facing public universities, CSUN's partnership with a private developer to create a retail center on unused, unneeded property on campus "makes perfect sense." As a new source of revenue to help fund CSUN's academic mission, the project gets at a stark reality--the sharp decline in the university's share of state funding at a time when more and more students seek admittance.

Cal State Northridge President Blenda J. Wilson announced Monday the appointment of a new vice president for finance and administrative services to oversee the university's troubled earthquake recovery. The selection of Arthur J. Elbert, who managed $100 million in capital improvements at the University of Oklahoma, appeared to clear the way for the university to resume control over its $350-million reconstruction program.

Most of the money was paid to administrators and other employees in the form of salary, travel and so-called hardship advances, according to auditors responsible for the published report, prepared for the California State University Board of Trustees.

Wilson will assume a lengthy list of festering problems and half-finished priorities, from completing the rebuilding of the quake-damaged campus to restoring order to depleted administrative ranks. But it remained unclear Tuesday whether the person next facing those challenges will be an interim successor or permanent replacement.
