Reflections on Campus Closure


Michael Haggans' blog at Campus Matters offers a number of interesting essays and commentaries on the concept of campus and possible changes on the horizon.  He reflects in one post from September, "Campus Closed," on similarities between temporary and more permanent campus closures by noting that, "Whether by snow and ice, wind, fire, flood, civil disorder or bankruptcy, you may be certain that your campus will be closed.  It is just a matter of when and how long the closure will last.  Even a brief closing provides a glimpse of higher education without the comfortable assumption of shared space and time - the familiar."
