Officials at Ball State University are parsing the public. They’ve decided to make evaluation forms on prospective provost candidates available to their public — the faculty, staff and students of the university – but not to the general public. Any member of the campus community picking up documents on the provost applicants must sign an agreement not to distribute the information publicly. The university contends the forms are intra-agency documents, not public records. (10/5/05)
