UCC Becomes a Special University

Rah Rah Rah Badaboom...Premier Gordon Campbell, a bit but welcome player in this story, announced today that Kamloops' University College of the Cariboo will become a "special university" with some type of broad responsibility for distance education all across British Columbia. Some preliminary thoughts:

- the campaign style announcement is now over. The hard work and struggles continue.
- must keep teaching as primary focus. Research is prestigious, but excellence in teaching is incredibly important.
- Whenever Gordon Campbell tries to sound visionary, he comes across really flat.

I will probably have more to say about this later.
