Mandate for a New Century: Reshaping the Research University's Role in Social Policy. Eleventh David Dodds Henry Lecture.
Shalala, Donna E.; And Others
A speech by Chancellor Donna E. Shalala of the University of Wisconsin, Madison, is presented; it calls for a broadening university commitment to societal issues and for the university to engage in basic research on social policy issues in a fashion similar to the fundamental science and technology research currently undertaken. The lecture articulates a vision of the land-grant mission for public research universities of the 21st century and also calls for the research university, receiving funding from the general public, to work with a greater sense of public service in helping society to grow healthy and prosperous. In addition to the speech, three responses by administrators and scholars from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign are provided, as well as questions from the audience, and Chancellor Shalala's responses to these questions. The formal responses are from the following personnel at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign campus: Morton W. Weir, Chancellor of the university; P. David Pearson, Dean, College of Education; and Dianne M. Pinderhughes, Associate Professor of Political Science and Acting Director, Afro-American Studies and Research Program. (GLR)
