Higher Education's Social Contract to Serve the Public Interest
Peterson, Robert G.
Educational Record, 56, 4, 250-56, F 75
The author argues that despite difficulties of implementation, meeting the public interest remains a worthy goal and needed criterion for higher education. His suggested public interest concept stresses consideration of the interest of society as a whole, not derived solely from the sum of individual interests. (JT)
