Agre, Philip E.
Planning for Higher Education, v29 n2 p5-14 Win 2000-2001
Discusses the commodity model (the university as competitor in the marketplace) and the community model (the university as idealized microcosm of society). Asserts that despite inherent tension between them, they have always coexisted in the institutional design of the university. Argues that no matter how radical the changes in information technology become, universities must continue to manage this tension. (EV)
