It's great to come across this blog. I attended the University of Dayton and have to admit their Fitz Center for Leadership in Community is an excellent example of how a university can catalyze positive change in the lives of individuals and communities. I look forward to reading what you have to say.

I teach at a state university in Ohio, and would very much like to see our university take on something like this. I study education, and there is a lack of Midwest-regional thinking in my field as well; most just assume that we are "normal" and have no distinguishing characteristics. Maybe we Midwesterners assume that because we are the "heartland" and the keeper of American values, that we represent the real America, and not just the Midwest? Perhaps the idea of "southern exceptionalism" is another reason why regional studies there are so important, because there of their historic marginalization?
