Reforming the University: The Role of the Research Center.
Sieber, Sam D.; Lazarsfeld, Paul F.
The authors seek to show the potentiality of research organizations for the achievement of basic university goals, and to isolate the conditions that impede or promote the success of these integrative agencies. In addition, they examine the role of the managerial scholars who are in the positions of leadership since they believe this role is vital to organizational success. The data for the investigations has been derived chiefly from the schools of education. There are four reasons for this choice: (1) The study of education includes all the behavioral sciences. (2) Education requires the integration of service and scholarship within the university which needs to be studied widely by researchers. (3) Graduate schools of education have taken great pains in the past decade to improve their research establishment. (4) It is possible to achieve a unique historical perspective to the problems of university research organizations since there has been a long and well documented history of educational research agencies in the university.
