30 Articles -- A Lovenote to CASE CURRENTS
As I was zipping through an online list of my CASE CURRENTS articles, I happened to notice a little number at the bottom of the screen -- 30 articles.*
Whoa! 30 articles? I started writing for CURRENTS ten years ago. My first editor, Andrea Gabrick, liked to give me the stories that had a lot of complicated, moving parts. Making sense of those issues has been an amazing education for me. I've had the chance to write about everything from the high cost of tuition to institutional image to spirituality and a new era of advancement, to millennials, helicopter parents, missions, branding and mascots. Each article has allowed me to dip into the collective wisdom of a smart, talented and goodhearted school and higher ed community. Literally scores of sources who have shared their experiences and insights.
Thank you to CASE, thank you to my editors, and thank you to everyone who has ever answered one of my emails headed: "CASE CURRENTS Interview?"
