Manning the Lifeboats

Inside Higher Ed takes another look at New College of California as it slowly slides below the surface. While disheartened undergrads struggle to stay above water absent federal loan money, law school students are taking a more practical approach, exploring what lifeboats in the form of loan forgiveness and transfer options are available before the cutoff in January. Given the school may still lose accreditation in February, this seems like a prudent idea.

Volunteer of the Year

If you have time to check out our recently-refurbished Public Good Project website, you'll see why we are so pleased with our volunteer of the year, Mark Gould of Photosynthesis Studio in San Francisco. Mark not only took on rebuilding our site's functionality, but made it a thing of beauty to boot. Needless to say, we are extremely grateful (and relieved) at having our files once again available to the public, not to mention accessible for collegial purposes.

While Mark has yet to put the finishing touches on our site (paying clients understandably come first) we couldn't wait to brag up his fine work. If you need a web designer who knows his stuff, give Mark a shout. His contact info is on the Public Good home page.
