Uncommon Thinking for the Common Good™Stay
I’m not sure how this topic has arisen again, but, I concur with Steve!
Although I’ve not been on the list as long as some, during the years I have been subscribed, there have been only a small handful of times in which “marketing” has been a nuisance. In return for these moments, we have created a win-win scenario. For us, we often times receive insights from a larger community regarding what is taking place outside our walls. For the vendor, they have an expanded opportunity to learn about the current issues, thoughts, and actions that are at the forefront of the modern college/university. Since we do use consultants, software, and other services to supplement our environments, I cannot see how this latter fact is a bad thing.
Since Steve is much smarter than me, I guess this is my penny’s worth on the topic.
