Why Students Are Not (Just) Customers (and Other Reflections on Life after George).
Sharrock, Geoff
Journal of Higher Education Policy and Management, v22 n2 p149-64 Nov 2000
Uses the play "Life after George," involving a dispute between a professor and dean, as a springboard to explore management issues in universities. Discusses students as customers; quality and value in public institutions; funding dilemmas, particularly in the humanities; and university culture versus university management. Advocates moving beyond tribal antagonism between scholarly and managerial authority. (EV)
