Diversity is great, but does it apply to opinions about diversity? Our academic mice demonstrate the complexity of the problem
Every research university has them: administrators who are supposed to facilitate grant applications, but mostly just slow them down. These administrators are in a tough position. The grant process can be abused, and they have the look out for irregularities. But to honest researchers, the administrators are obstructionists who end up hogging the credit when grants come in.
“academic mice” is a light-hearted strip about academic life that I draw. New contributions are sporadic at best, but I hope you enjoy what’s here (simultaneously posted to Facebook)!
The academic mice who run Mice U. nurture a wide range of political speech, but not too wide.
So this is history now, but: On September 2, 2010 “academic mice” debuted in print in The Breeze, the student newspaper of James Madison University. It had a weekly one-year run and then became a (sporadically updated) web comic. At debut time there was a nice feature article about the cartoon and cartoonist.
