Campus, Inc: Corporate Power in the Ivory Tower
The university, as a core institution of democratic society, is increasingly threatened by the intrusion of big business. Campus, Inc. not only describes the threat of corporatization, but provides real-life strategies, campaigns, and solutions to the problem. A new era of student activism has rolled back the sale of sweatshop-produced items in campus stores; the re-emergence of unions has helped faculty organize to prevent "hostile takeovers" of our publicly funded institutions; and effective strategies to redemocratize the university are increasingly available.
