It begins…

With this post, The Mortarboard Blog begins!

Welcome to The Mortarboard, the administrator’s source for solutions in higher education. I tell you about challenges other schools have faced, benchmark the problem, share their best practices and epic fails, and invite you to consider whether what worked for them might also work at your institution.

This blog is the companion site for the podcast I’m developing by the same name. This blog will contain editorials that may ultimately become podcasts, text of some interesting interviews, links to people and stories relevant to the blog’s content, and more. I’ll cover topics that, while often key issues within higher education, are rarely addressed frankly by college presidents.

Thanks for joining me!
