If you were Big Puba for a day…


When I need inspiration, I turn to my wise and worldly readers.

Let’s say, for the sake of argument, that the heavens open and somehow—pick your creation myth—you’re anointed the Great Pub of higher education in your state for a day. As a GPHE, you have the power to change one policy on an ongoing basis and everyone has to accept that.

And no, it can’t be “I’m a Big Puba for life.” This is cheating.

Next, for the sake of argument, let’s assume that you are public spirited and want to do the right thing. You want your state to be better for your time as a GPHE.

What would you accept? What will your legacy be?

Bonus points for answers that include possible unintended consequences. “Be careful what you wish for” is always good advice.

As always, I can be reached by email at deandad at gmail dot comor, at least for now, on Twitter at @deandad. The answers that catch your eye will be featured in future posts.
