What a piece of work that guy is. In private an incredible micro manager. Dickson probably can't paint his office without getting Cowen to sign off on the color. But in public? Well if the issue is a popular one, his goofy mug will be all over it in as many media vehicles as possible.

If the issue is a little sticky or controversial, he either tries to do it in the dark (the "review"), or he buffers himself with "blue ribbon committees" and being bound by the recommendations of his department heads.

Yeah, he's a regular Charlemagne.

No kidding. Hopefully people start getting angry and ready to do something about it before he ruins Tulane for good.

absolute worse president in the history of Tulane. I remember back to circa 1963, there was an article in Time magazine about the four most upcoming universities in the US which included Emory, Washington U in St Louis, University of Rochester, Tulane. Well, we have not gone anywhere academically and this Tulane model is a bad joke and an excuse to ruin athletics as well. We will be doomed under the "leadership" of this self absorbed phony, Coward.

Hello everyone...Myles Brand here, posting from "zero tolerance hell"...Please leave my good friend Scott Coward alone...all this bashing and negative post are confusing the issue with fact..and as all good Politicians, University Prez's and some half witted AD's will tell ya...this is not a good practice !!!!..and, as my good freind Bob Knight will tell you, I and Scott are very much alike

Cowen is the quintessential bureaucratic loser. He hides behind committees and procedures, is driven solely by what it means to his image, is a micromanager (one of the premier symptoms of a poor leader), shows little or no courage on important topics, and has no concept of how to be a strategic leader. He also seems to stagger through life with realtively little information about what the rest of the collegiate world is doing on anything--he doesn't even seem to have a good base of facts on which to assess where Tulane stands. He redefines the term "clueless", and takes the term "devious" to new heights.

One of these days I just might. For now, I'll continue to focus on Cowen's strengths (LOL).
