It’s nice to have my feet on the ground here again in Lincoln after 10 airplane flights, three cities and a hectic nine days.
I first headed to Atlanta, and then moved on to Montreal for a conference of arts and sciences deans. It gathered deans from a good mix of institutions from across the United States and Canada. Such conferences are a good forum to address shared problems like how to deal with limited resources while having more students and how to incorporate technology in the classroom. I also led a workshop for new deans.
I flew back to Lincoln Friday night for Nebraska’s football game against Northwestern on Saturday so I could meet some alums and friends of the college. Monday I was off to Tucson to talk with faculty at the University of Arizona as we move forward with the Life Sciences Initiative here at UNL.
November has shaped up to be a travel-heavy month. I’ll head to Mumbai later this month to deliver some math lectures at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research. I’ve never been to India and am looking forward to Thanksgiving there. There’s not much that beats a good stretch of doing math and eating Indian food.
