Sheila Liming is an Assistant Professor in the English Department at the University of North Dakota. Per her university biography, she once earned a bagpiping scholarship and plays the accordion.
Which sounds, honestly, kind of awesome. Who knew there was a scholarship for bagpiping out there in the world? Also, accordions are fantastic.
Anyway, Liming authored an article recently for the Chronicle of Higher Education headlined, “My University Is Dying.” (See update below)
The subheadline: “How a ruthless demand for austerity bleeds public universities dry.”
If UND is dying, well, that’s big news for the people of North Dakota.
