Saying that wont make it happen, just like it has not until now.

Hence, IPv6 deployment is continuing to fail.

Perhaps, you could continue your anecdote by detailing what operational 
utility this deployed dual stack has brought the college. I expect that 
at minimum they can game better in-campus, no?

If you can explain to operators and users why it helps them now, odds of 
deployment improve drastically.
