Resources and Resourcefulness
Hall, Susan J.
Quest, v55 n3 p258-266 Aug 2003
In this paper, the author talks about resources and resourcefulness and focuses on the theme that resources include all means of support. Human resources, particularly creativity, intellect, and diligence, are among the most valuable. In times such as these, academic departments and programs in kinesiology, physical education, exercise science, recreation, dance, and all of the related combinations of these fields may be particularly vulnerable when administrators make decisions to cut programs based on ignorance and prejudice, rather than quality of the programs, accomplishments of the affiliated faculties, and the number and quality of the students being served. In times such as these, the author believes it is especially important to remember that not all resources are of the financial type. She cites some examples of great leaders who, at critical points in history, have inspired people and entire nations to succeed in times of great crisis with reminders about the resourcefulness of the human spirit.
