June 2020

Dr. Rusty Martin, the former president of Moravian University, gives comfort to those who were in the process of writing a book or long article about higher education but must now reconsider almost everything in it. He submitted a final copy of his manuscript to a major university publishing house, but because of the COVID-19 crisis, much of what he wrote in November 2019 quickly became irrelevant two months later. Consequently, his advice to fellow writers is, for the time being, to not obsess over what cannot be controlled, to focus instead on getting ourselves and our families safely through this crisis, and, finally, when this crisis is over, and we have more information, to update what we have written in light of the brave new world we will all have to face. Doing this will make our manuscripts even stronger and more relevant than before COVID-19 -- and keep us sane in the process.
