UW's Daily Bulletin (Monday, August 9th) featured an article with an intriguing snippet by President Johnston:
"The gap between the U.S. and the rest of the world in the quality and accessibility to universities and investment in post secondary education and research grows. It was interesting that no leading U.S. university attended this conference -- though the leading UK, Australian, Chinese, HK and Canadian ones did. The U.S. is in a league and a mindset of its own. Truly, there is a new Rome and that is a pity for global higher education and research."
If this is true, -- and I don't doubt it -- what implications does it have for us? Are we bound to head south for graduate studies?
