There is a lot of crazy, stressful, and, frankly, bad stuff going on across campus at the University of North Dakota right now. Budget crisis, identity crisis, leadership crisis, mission crisis. In fact, anyone anywhere who is not personalizing and politicizing the sense of crisis, simply isn’t do higher education right.
But, from all of this, we get a break for a few days. The UND Writers Conference offers a kind of Halcyon Days. Go check out the schedule and go to the events (if you’re from North Dakota). If you’re not from here, take a few days and wish you were (it happens very, very rarely).
