The Incredible Shrinking Harvard
Richard Bradley writes a fascinating piece about the current challenges at my alma mater. There's no question that Drew Faust was hired when the university faced a a bountiful set of opportunities... much different from the problems and threats it faces today. She may very well have been ideal for the situation Harvard faced two years ago. Bradley raises the interesting question though of whether Faust has the skills and capabilities to deal with today's circumstances.
