Support from a Senior Manager at Microsoft

Eric Hanson, a senior manager at  Microsoft says:

Changing CISE to a teaching department will greatly reduce the ability to attract quality graduate and undergraduate students. The best
students want to be taught by strong faculty in classes with other top students. The best people who want careers in computing will stay away from UF. This will hurt the Florida economy and diminish the stature of UF. Microsoft appreciates the ability to recruit UF students who have been trained by strong research-oriented faculty, at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.
