It's Nothing New! A History of Conflict in Higher Education.
Holton, Susan A.
New Directions for Higher Education, n92 p11-18 Win 1995
This article argues that conflict has been a part of higher education since its inception, and that many problems faced by academics today have centuries-old prototypes. Conflict types include those between academics and community, religion and secularism, research and teaching, administration and the teaching profession, students and institution, faculty and institution, tradition and innovation, and majority and minority groups.
