Former Southeast Missouri State University president Dale Nitschke defends the arrangement he has with the university as a fund-raiser. The State Auditor is critical of the university for giving Nitschke the title of “chancellor,” but letting him live in Ohio. Auditor Claire McCaskill says the arrangement increases costs to the school. But Nitschke says it’s important to have the title because donors are reluctant to deal with a “fund-raising consultant.” And he says he would not have taken the job if he were not allowed to work out of his home in suburban Cincinnati. Southeast’s current President, Ken Dobbins, says Nitschke already has raised three-million dollars for the school. Nitschke is making 95-thousand dollars a year.
