The paradox of the modern University is its unique position in society as both a knowledge-based machine and an economic global business model. This book examines the problems of this dual purpose as it impacts relationships between students and faculty; faculty and administrators; administrators and financial supporters as they struggle to find that balance between true purpose and the ever changing role of the modern university to its regional community. The author offers fresh insight and innovative ideas to this vigorous debate.
