Reflections on University Values and the American Scholar.
Anderson, G. Lester; And Others
The university exists in its own right as a fundamental construct in the system of beliefs, traditions, myths, saga, governments, churches, and other social institutions and structures that comprise the hallmarks of Western culture. In an attempt to understand the university and its value system, pertinent issues are discussed: (1) the university as an organization (G. Lester Anderson and Kenneth P. Mortimer); (2) values in higher education (G. Lester Anderson and William Toombs); (3) the university as an organization and how it differs from a business (Donald C. Hambrick); and (4) the American scholar in 1976 (G. Lester Anderson). (Author/KE)
