Higher education: open for business
Higher Education: Open for Business presents a well-argued critique of the emergence of commercial values in a system reserved for learning and scholastic inquiry. Through closer examination of academic areas such as the campus environment, the classroom, academic research, and college sports, the audience is made aware that we have to think carefully whether we want to turn a college nation into a college corporation.
