The Academy's Dirty Secret
Slate
According to a new study that scrutinized more than 16,000 faculty members at 242 schools, just a quarter of all universities account for 71 to 86 percent of all tenure-track faculty in the US and Canada in business, computer science, and history. Just eighteen elite universities produce half of all computer-science professors, sixteen schools produce half of all business professors, and eight schools account for half of all history professors.

How to Start an Art School
Momus
There are plenty of examples out there, from fly-by-night, for-profit scoundrels to august, ivy-draped centuries-old institutions. Why not just join one of them rather than go through the trouble of starting something new? Unfortunately, the current model for art school is awful. Let us count the ways, easily summed in dollars.

Many of us have seen the Andy Warhol Converse sneakers and the Uniqlo t-shirts adorned with famous artworks. We've seen the painted BMW cars and the branding of vodka bottles. If artists want to put their signature squiggles on a shoe or a bottle of booze, are they compromising their integrity in exchange for a bit of cash?

US Museums Capitalize on Baby Boomers' Desire to Write Big Checks
Art Newspaper
Cultural giving among America's top philanthropists fell slightly in 2014, according to the Chronicle of Philanthropy's annual ranking of the fifty largest charitable donors. The news might come as a surprise to US museum directors, who have been swiftly and quietly raising eight-, nine-, and ten-figure donations from eager patrons. Their ambitious capital campaigns make the austerity measures of the recent recession feel like a distant memory.

From the Journal Editor's Vantage Point
Vitae
We could spend a lot of time discussing why academic journals accept so few manuscripts at the outset. Having satirized the peer-review process myself, I would be the first to acknowledge that it's far from perfect. But pragmatically speaking, it's important to realize that if you receive a revise-and-resubmit and decide to cut your losses and move on to another journal, you're likely to face exactly the same outcome.

We Need More STEM Majors with Liberal Arts Training
Washington Post
Our culture has drawn an artificial line between art and science, one that did not exist for many innovators. Leonardo da Vinci's curiosity and passion for painting, writing, engineering, and biology helped him triumph in both art and science. And Steve Jobs once declared: "It's in Apple's DNA that technology alone is not enough—it's technology married with liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields us the result that makes our heart sing."
