Comparative Perspective on Higher Education for the Twenty-First Century.
Altbach, Philip G.
Higher Education Policy, v11 n4 p347-56 Dec 1998
The university is no longer flourishing, yet it is far from collapsing. It continues to play a necessary role in educating, performing research, providing opportunities for social mobility, and certifying expertise and professional competence. Universities have been transformed in less than a century from small, elitist institutions fulfilling a limited educational mission to primary engines of the knowledge-based society. (MSE)
