As we head into the holiday break, Jan and I would like to wish everyone happy and safe holidays. This is a great time for reflection about the year ahead and what we hope to achieve in 2010.

I will be taking a few days off to enjoy family and friends. On Christmas Day the Richards clan will gather for good food and games with grandchildren. I trust that each member of CSN’s family will find restful time among good friends.      

If you have time and the inclination to do some reading, I recommend the following:

W. Bown, M. Chingos and M. McPherson, Crossing the Finish Line, Completing College at America’s Public Universities

J. Garland, Saving Alma Mater, A Rescue Plan for America’s Public Universities

R. Zemsky, Making Reform Work, The Case for Transforming American Higher Education

I highly recommend the Zemsky and Garland books.

Thank you all for a great 2009. We have come far in the last 365 days. Imagine what we can do in the next year.

Enjoy the holidays. See you in the next decade.
