This story is about the culture of higher education in America. Despite its shortcomings and many critics, American higher education remains the envy of many countries around the world. In the story that follows, long-held teaching values seemingly conflict with newer ideas about working with college students. All characters, locations, and events are fictional, but the underlying issues are real and cause for reflection.
