A Guide for Hard Times in Academia
Reeves, Thomas C.
Academic Questions, v16 n2 p31-35 Jun 2003
The author lampoons twenty-first-century academic priorities. Using a fictional campus facing state-mandated budget reductions, the author parodies a system that retains high-salaried administrative and public relations positions, special-interest majors, athletic programs and junior/ad-hoc faculty, while relinquishing admissions staff, library resources, and foundational courses such as science, English and foreign languages.
