Hi parents and families! By the time you read this, I’ll have just completed my 45th year working in higher education, 17 as the Vice President for Student Affairs at Duke and the rest at five other universities. It’s impossible for me to recount all the changes that have transpired over these many years, especially since about half have been without the web, email and social media. But technological changes rank high among them as do the diversification and globalization of the student bodies and complexity of their needs.
