The Quad is a community…your community. Communities should have dialogues, possibly even multilogues. (Yes, multilogues is a word. We looked it up). So let's talk! Reach out with topics we should cover, news we should be up on, even questions about your personal experiences…well, not too personal. Some questions are best left to doctors and clergy. But where your education and career are concerned, we're pretty open-minded. Reach out any time. (I mean, it's the internet. Of course you can reach out anytime. We never close.)
If you want to advertise, update your school info, write for The Quad, or you're just generally confused and don't know where to turn, the following page is for you:

Tomar. And because he's just that kind of guy, David will personally read your message and, where both possible and appropriate, provide response.
Chief Editor of The Quad
David A. Tomar is an author and journalist who has written extensively on music and education. Tomar catapulted to notoriety with his controversial and eye-opening 2010 article in The Chronicle of Higher Education titled “The Shadow Scholar.” Writing under the pseudonym Ed Dante (a name now committed to perpetuity by its own Wikipedia entry), Tomar highlighted his decade-long career as an academic ghostwriter while simultaneously announcing his retirement from the business.
Since then, Tomar has focused not just on exposing the broader failures in American education but also on reforming it. Through his full-length 2012 memoir, The Shadow Scholar: How I Made a Living Helping College Kids Cheat (Bloomsbury USA), his consulting work for the International Center for Academic Integrity (ICAI), and his editorial seat at TheBestSchools.org, Tomar is seeking to narrow the gap between the promise of education and its (often dismal) reality.
Tomar has written for The New York Times and is a regular contributor to The Huffington Post as well as editor-in-chief of music blog The Liner Note.
