When They Discover There's No Water, They'll Drink the Sand

University professors let go of education of the whole person a long time ago, and now some of them are bitching about the "misguided functionaries" in Student Life who have rushed in to fill the void they left.

Maybe the faculty should buck up and start participating more in the everyday residence life of students. The scholars issuing the complaint choose the cheap and easy solution: prodding administrators to maintain "fundamental ideals." Maybe they should choose a harder path of getting involved and modeling those ideals outside the classroom themselves.
