Sunday, Doctor Mark Taylor published an op-ed about changing the university as we know it.
And here’s Female Science Professor’s response.
I like many of Doctor Taylor’s ideas, particularly 7-year contracts instead of tenure and an increasingly interdisciplinary approach to research, but mainly I like the idea of radically changing the academy.
It’s kind of like imagining how the Catholic church is going to change . . . one knows it’s not going to happen fast, but it’s fun to imagine the improvements that might be made someday.
