Well based on that email we all received I guess it is obvious that she is a major problem and has helped with the downfall of this department. Sounds like she has literally STOLEN money from this department. She needs to go down and go down big time !!! She is a menace to this department and is incompetent to say the least !!!

It is also blatantly clear the type of administration that the president is running around here. It is nothing but incompetent, reckless, and idiotic people running this university. IT IS NOW CLEAR WHY WE ARE IN THE MESS WE ARE IN !!! WHO HAS THE POWER TO CLEAN HOUSE AT THIS UNIVERSITY?????

Our neighborhood reporter I hear has gotten the email as well .....more to come !!!

USF's No. 2 student affairs administrator is out
Administrators won't renew the contract for James Dragna, who last year left his job at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington to be No. 2 administrator in USF's student affairs division.
Jennifer Meningall, vice president of student affairs, recently sent Dragna a letter stating that it is "no longer in the university's best interest" to keep him on as senior associate vice president of student affairs.
"This notice of non-reappointment does not constitute a dismissal for cause or disciplinary action."
Asked Wednesday about her decision to release Dragna, Meningall would not discuss her motives or the events leading up to it. "It's a personnel matter," she said, "and in those cases I try to respect privacy."
She said the decision was not related to looming budget cuts that will cost universities tens of millions in state dollars. She said she is "slightly redesigning" the No. 2 position and - barring any changes forced by the budget cuts - plans to search nationally for a replacement.
Dragna oversaw five departments, including residential life and housing, an area that is a priority for Meningall as she tries to get more students living on the main campus in Tampa.
Dragna, who made $135,000 a year with benefits, could not be reached for comment.
