One might think that a global financial crisis would be no time for college and university presidents to think expansively. Hunkering down is the more natural reaction to a threat of the magnitude that the economy continues to present. But expansive thought is exactly what we need right now—not necessarily the kind that grows our physical plant or our list of program offerings, but a fundamental reexamination of what American higher education is all about and where each of our institutions fits into that ideal.
