A Regal and Eloquent

University of Minnesota

Faculty Member

From the Next Degree by Casey Selix:

A YouTube video of a professor’s impassioned speech last month to the University of Minnesota Board of Regents has drawn more than 7,800 views. Eva van Dassow, associate professor of classical and Near Eastern studies for the Twin Cities campus, is regal and eloquent as she goes after the U administration’s approach to "pruning the tree of knowledge" by lopping off parts of the "cash cow," i.e., the College of Liberal Arts. Hat tip to Bill Gleason, who writes for the Star Tribune’s online community voices section and is an associate professor in the University of Minnesota Medical School.
