Just seems to be the way of the world right now. Universities seem to be under fire as they continue to come to terms with the fact that the rest of the world has changed from underneath them. Universities are grappling with how do they fit into the global community. The rules have changed and everyone is acting like they are surprised even though this has been asserted for years. It reminds me of iTunes and the music industry.
Kudos to McGill! After what I have been witnessing lately, McGill seems coolheaded, strategic, and thoughtful.
