Earlier this month in Saratoga Springs, Professor John Tagg was officially inducted into the State University of New York Distinguished Academy, honoring faculty who have achieved the highest rank of academic excellence, a rank that can only be designated by the Board of Trustees. Tagg says, “In the forty-odd years that I’ve been teaching, I’ve always taught at public institutions. It’s a commitment to the openness and accessibility of education, but it’s also a commitment to the idea that thought is not property. It’s not the property of a few; it’s the right of all of us.”
