What Is the Purpose of a University--And What Light Does Christian Faith Shed on this Question?
Jenkins, David
Studies in Higher Education, v13 n3 p239-47 1988
The purpose of a university is to survive by giving society enough of what it wants in such a way that it earns, retains, and makes space for its proper pursuits, including systematic criticism of what society wants. The disciplines need constant renewing and constant resurrection for the sake of humanity. (MSE)
