I just had to blog about this...

Hearing about how Morehouse College fairs against other institutions of higher education I just had to put this out there. Of course I will admit Morehouse doesn't fair too well against a school like the University of Chicago. Besides Morehouse, as I understand it, has just wrapped up their capital campaign but it doesn't approach Chicago's $2 billion capital campaign.

Well in Crain's this morning we see that Chicago is getting a new president. Robert Zimmer who is a Provost at Brown University. To take the post as President he has returned to the University of Chicago where he was a professor of Mathematics. This article has alluded to one of his many responsibilities as head of the south side university...

He will also be leading the university as its management contract for the Argonne National Laboratory, which the university has had since the laboratory's 1946 inception, is under review.
Also on his list of responsibilities is continuing the relationship University of Chicago has with its South Side neighbors.
The second part is key I suppose. Especially since the neighborhoods around the University of Chicago are surely gentrifying.
