Huge thumbs-up \(and happy new year\!\) to the good folks at @ReclaimHosting, who not only provide awesome service on normal days, but who responded within minutes *on a holiday* to a server issue I was having. I cannot say enough good things about them.

A big part of what I’ve been writing about lately, and tied into the question I asked Bro Adams recently of @NEHgov, Earl Lewis of @MellonFdn, and Lynn Pasquerella of @aacu yesterday. This is where the rubber meets the road in creating institutional change. #mla18 #s89 https://twitter.com/michaelcrow/status/948948442721562624

Fri Jan 05 16:27:32 +0000 2018

Replying to @NEHgov, @MellonFdn and @aacu

That said, we need to think very carefully about what it is we mean by “societal impact.” Are we really meeting community needs, or are we projecting what we think those needs are? #mla18 #s89

Fri Jan 05 16:30:22 +0000 2018

Replying to @swarthmoreburke, @NEHgov, @MellonFdn and @aacu

It’s not singular in the writing I’m doing that’s longer than 280 :)

Fri Jan 05 16:38:06 +0000 2018

Replying to @swarthmoreburke, @NEHgov, @MellonFdn and @aacu

This is exactly what I’m getting at. Are our institutions listening to the expressed needs of whatever community/ies they are interacting with? Can we treat public service as our actual rather than merely slogan-based value?

Fri Jan 05 16:39:56 +0000 2018

Replying to @swarthmoreburke, @NEHgov, @MellonFdn and @aacu

I’m not sure I follow. Is the “they” here our institutions?

Fri Jan 05 16:42:56 +0000 2018

Replying to @swarthmoreburke, @NEHgov, @MellonFdn and @aacu

Oof, exactly what I’m trying to get at. That’s the underlying meaning of “societal impact,” I think, and what I want us to think a bit more carefully about. Again, it’s a whole chapter, so can’t cover adequately here.

Fri Jan 05 16:45:00 +0000 2018

Replying to @swarthmoreburke, @NEHgov, @MellonFdn and @aacu

That is far more blanket a suggestion than I am trying to make. But any institution that declares itself to be in the public service needs to be thinking more about what that means, how it’s manifested, and how it affects assessment, reward structures, priorities.

Fri Jan 05 16:47:50 +0000 2018

Replying to @swarthmoreburke, @NEHgov, @MellonFdn and @aacu

Again, part of the point of the larger argument.
