- Several people have been instrumental in bringing this report to fruition. I
am first of all grateful to Patrick Callan, Joni Finney, and William Doyle of the
National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education. In this and other projects
we have done together, I have enormously appreciated their support, wisdom, and spirit
As always, I have relied heavily on the support and insights of my colleagues
at Public Agenda, including Deborah Wadsworth, Jean Johnson, Steve Farkas, Margaret
Dunning, Ann Duffett, Stephen Immerwahr, and Joanna McHugh.
I am particularly grateful to Villanova University for allowing me to contribute
my time and energy to this project.
