Uncle Bill Forecasts Change, Challenge, and Endless Variety: Rejoinder to "'Your Professor Will Know You as a Person': Evaluating and Rethinking the Relational Boundaries Between Faculty and Students"
Starbuck, William H.
Journal of Management Education, v41 n1 p39-45 Feb 2017
The article, "Your Professor Will Know You as a Person" (Chory & Offstein, 2016) brings two groups of thoughts to the author's mind. First, postsecondary education is changing in ways that are forcing higher education institutions to reformulate their strategies. These changes are likely to increase the heterogeneity of universities, and thus to give students and their parents more options. Second, education has long had tasks that relate to the maturation of human beings and their statuses in societies, and these tasks are highly relevant for people in their late teenage years. Not all universities accord these tasks equal importance, but all postsecondary schools have to accommodate the distinctive challenges that face maturing teenagers, and some universities can build effect strategies around these persistent tasks.
