Item description for Whose University Is It? by Douwe Breimer...
In the days when most European universities were controlled by churches or governments, their goals were set by those institutions. Today, universities are essentially self-governing, but that freedom has brought a host of questions about their very purpose.
In this volume, a diverse group of contributors examines such questions in depth. Does substantial government support carry with it accountability to politicians? How should universities select their students---and do they have a social duty to widen their admissions? As government support grows more precarious, answers to these questions become increasingly important, and Whose University Is It? will be invaluable to both politicians and educators as they look to the future.
