What Is the Function of a University? Ivory Tower or Trade School for Plumbers?
Barrett, Brenda
Quality Assurance in Education, v6 n3 p145-51 1998
University education was originally intended for an elite group; the campus environment and teacher-student relationships were as important as study. Now access has widened and fewer students live on campus. Failure to distinguish between various forms of higher education (e.g., vocational qualifications) is harmful to the status of the college degree. (Author/SK)
