Item description for Off Course: From Public Place to Market Place at Melbourne University by John Cain...

A candid and disturbing case study revealing a system under siege, this is an in-depth examination of the University of Melbourne, one of Australia's oldest and most prestigious tertiary institutions, and how well it does or does not serve Australia's needs. A timely wake-up call for all who believe in the commercial quick-fix for tertiary education funding, it offers insights from university insiders such as former vice chancellors and current University Council members. The ascendancy of administrators over academics, the subsequent alienation of the academics, the muted voice of the University Council, and falling academic standards are among the ills cited. Arguing that the university has lost sight of its fundamental role as a public institution, this book offers a framework for a way back. Although it is directed at this specific university, its findings may well be appropriate for others facing similar dilemmas.
