How did you feel about the staff at your university when they enforced policy? When they told you that something wasn’t in your best interest? When they offered to help you through tough times? It’s been a while since we’ve visited the subject of Higher Education, and we’ve perhaps never approached it from quite the same vector as this episode. Student Affairs veteran and resident synesthete Shawn Brackett joins me and Kevin for an insider’s look at institutionalized paternalist / maternalist practices in public universities, historical precedents for them, and some questions around the ethics of their implementation.
