Hangin' em up...

Well after 40 years, I am stepping out of a University setting come May.

Turned in my retirement papers yesterday. Gonna organic farm full time in the summer, and sit by the fire in the wintertime.

Kinda wierd knowing this will be the last freshman class I ever see.

It's a feeling of relief as well.

Two...Oklahoma and then South Dakota.

Universities have moved to a consumer model over the past 10 years. Lots more online...

Adjuncts and GTA's probably teach at least half the classes at major universities. At least at the 100/200 levels.Tenure track and tenured folk spend most of their time in a lab, writing, or attempting to get grants.

The top students today are much smarter than any I've ever seen. Unfortunately there exists a huge rich/poor gap in student ability. At least half this year's freshman class shouldn't be attending a major university. Six year graduation rates for most large colleges and universities is now less than 50%. Bunch of debt for no payoff.

IMO if you don't have an ACT of 24 or 25 you shouldn't consider a major school.

Top faculty are better today...but not enough of them. Most are mediocre.

I have been the chair of a department for the past 10 years. The amount of administrivia during that time has exploded. Everyone is CYA.

Lot's more to tell...but I won't bore you
