A conversation for and about individuals, committees and boards, Three Dawn Night draws instruction from empirical analysis and anecdotal experiences about drivers of both personal satisfaction and of individual and community prosperity, with a special emphasis on the role of higher education and public policy in community and economic development.
While I hope the site will become a source of information and challenge, my larger ambition may be less achievable. I intend for this site to encourage its readers.
In economic development, finding a balance between pragmatism and optimism, audacity and humility, respect and skepticism is hard enough when the conversation between close partners. It seems virtually impossible in a blog.
Nevertheless, for me encouragement most often springs from personal, authentic connections. So I’ll start with a commitment to writing clearly and a willingness to be informed by one another and by facts.
If you are discovering or creating an interesting project that is bringing diverse talents together for the purpose of strengthening regional economic development, I’d love to learn about it. If your project also involves higher education and public policy, I’d love to study it!
Thanks for reading and thank you, especially, for whatever you are doing to to bring greater prosperity to your community.
