The readings all seem to land well for me, but this might be becasue I have been reading so many blogs, stories, articles, etcc.. on having to decide between people and money.
Some qoutes that stood out to me from the readings are
“College presidents and their boards have a seemingly impossible choice..” – College Choice
“At that moment, we hoped to complete our research projects, write our papers, and pass our last class before throwing our caps in the sky and celebrating with our class of 2020” – John Jay Project
“It seems likely that no other college has suffered any many deaths as CUNY” (Robin, 2020)
I am anchoring on a few ideas that are coming from the readings
- How capitalism is showing up in “Plans to re open”
- How money seems to be the motivating factor for a-lot of private/public institutions.
- Notions of academic mutual aid and what that might look like for CUNY.
- Are we prioritizing stopping death or keeping life?
I recently published an article this summer that I believe adds to this discourse of this weeks readings (see below)
