Over the past year at Cliopatria, Critical Mass, Crooked Timber, Easily Distracted, Invisible Adjunct, and elsewhere, Burke has participated in many discussions of the malaise in contemporary higher education. Now, he unveils a detailed proposal for a new college. It is both minimalist and visionary: Burke at his best. I hope you'll read and think about his proposal, that we can discuss it here at Cliopatria, and that there are other responses to it elsewhere on the net. Burke is serious. If you know where $500 million can be found to launch it, he's ready to put it in place.
