Welcome to "It's All Academic," a website serving many functions for a decade. It started as support for the book pictured to the right; then was devoted entirely to topics related to higher education. After 10 years, I find I have little original left to say on that topic. The general blog category below may likely hold more personal observations or original poetry. During the late spring and summer of 2020, it featured the 365 Artists in 365 Days series (as below). That was resurrected in late Spring 2022, but without daily commitment. Lots of archives to the left.
