Maybe it’s the time of year, but I’ve received several variations on the same question recently: when a student doesn’t get into a Nursing program, what should s/he do next?It’s a great question, but the answers aren’t easy.

Earlier today, a dean came to see me regarding the future of a faculty member. This faculty member came to Hofstra with outstanding graduate school credentials and is an outstanding teacher. This person also has a much sought after area of specialty and has been very active in University service. At this point in time, the faculty member is getting ready to stand for tenure and the dean voiced a concern that the faculty member did not yet have sufficient scholarship to stand successfully. At the end of the day, the standards for tenure are the standards for tenure.

I was checking a book out of Greenback's library this morning, and happened to get in line behind a student who was checking out a tome (25 pounds, minimum!) titled Highway and Traffic Engineering.

It has been so long since I posted here, you may think the Babel Fish has gone fishing. In fact, it's just the usual craziness of the semester's start squared. In addition to teaching a first term seminar, serving as department chair, and going AWOL for a few days to attend a family wedding, I've been busy meeting with classes in political science, religion, and gender studies, showing students some of the tools of research. Every librarian involved in this kind of instruction has the occasional crisis of faith. Are the students really getting anything out of this?
