So basically her focus is expanding her own market, not the university's. Whether it's a technical violation or not, I would have serious concerns about whether or not she will always act in the school's best interest, because she obviously sees UCA as a paycheck, not a career. In contrast, professors who pursue research grants or work toward publishing in their field enhance the university's standing and help recruit top-notch students.

Ms. Munoz is one of the sweetest ladies you'll ever meet. She's loves her family and is always friendly to those she meets. What this has to do with the price of tea in China is beyond me. Leave her alone!

Some of you people go through life looking for reasons to be angry. What a miserable existence.

So it’s ok for coaches to be paid outside of universities (actually arranged by their university employers) to do endorsements, fundraising and speaking engagements and public appearances. ‘Hi i’m Bret Bielema, reminding you to eat Petit Jean Meats, official ham of the Razorbacks.’

But not ok for someone like this lady to further their own talent outside of work?

Look, she crossed the T's and dotted the I's. Her bosses were aware and didn't object. At any rate, having a sorta celebrity marketing director may be helpful to the university when it comes to fundraising, schmoozing and recruiting.

Sounds like some dipsh*t professor, probably in the Sociology Department, is extremely jealous that someone at the college has skills marketable in the private sector, unlike a Sociology professor.

Academic politics are vicious because the stakes are so low. As long as calculus and redneck studies professors are doing their day jobs I think they should be able to moonlight as Amway salesmen or jug band performers. One of the finest teachers I ever had at UCA years ago was an expert explainer of embryology and evolution while working as a Church of Christ preacher on the side.
