On Overthrowing the Tyranny of Taxonomies.
Gira, Catherine
Journal for Higher Education Management, v10 n1 p65-69 Sum-Fall 1994
The Carnegie system of classification of colleges and universities and other such classification systems are criticized as imprecise and potentially misleading. It is argued that an institution's mission statement, which should clearly define the institution and its goals, rather than categorization should be the basis on which decisions are made. (MSE)
