Truth be told, "Academic Rigor" doesn't have all that many supporters in academia. At best the concept fosters mixed feelings, especially in younger faculty; at worst, outright avoidance. Of course "rigor" as a concept gets lip service in catalogs and course descriptions, but as an applied value it's hard to come by, at least from what I've observed. Why is this?
