Collegiate Ideals in the London Times Higher
20 August 2004 (collegiateway.org) — I have written an editorial on residential colleges and student life which has just appeared in 20 August edition of the London Times Higher Education Supplement. Residential colleges are a good choice for every campus because
decentralised, cross-sectional, faculty-led societies of a few hundred members who share dining, housing and recreational space can provide undergraduates with a rich and integrated educational life, a life in which, as one of my students said: “I can discuss philosophy while stirring my macaroni.”
If you’re looking for a way to initiate discussion of the residential college idea among a group of colleagues, why not print out a copy of the editorial, pass it around, and see if it generates interest and debate.
