    "but have also squandered tens of millions of dollars on such things as renovations to their official residences, foreign travel, chauffeurs, dubious expense accounts and exorbitant salaries while faculty are told to do more with less and students are asked to pay more for less"

    Sometimes very old buildings that serve as residences for a university president need renovation to bring them up to today's standards. Especially if the house serves a dual purpose for the president to meet with students, it may need disabled access built in. I don't see that as "squandering." You don't attract good people with outdated facilities.
