A little holiday humor courtesy of Donald Moynihan, professor of public affairs at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. On Twitter, he offered the perfect holiday gift:
Universities need new revenue sources: this holiday season, purchase an artisanal grade, hand-crafted by our faculty pic.twitter.com/7uBcIy2zaH— Don Moynihan (@donmoyn) December 2, 2015
And then he followed it up with:
For a small extra fee sign up for our premium "A" program. Grades produced only by tenured faculty: you're worth it! pic.twitter.com/RyrnE22Vbt— Don Moynihan (@donmoyn) December 2, 2015
Asked how he came up with the idea, Moynihan said, via email, "Came to me in my walk into work. Maybe it was the need to do holiday shopping. Or perhaps a deeper dread of the university being broke, and forced to monetize in ways that go against our better judgment."
