The University as Global City: A New Way of Seeing Today's Academy
Frost, Susan; Chopp, Rebecca
Change, v36 n2 p44 Mar-Apr 2004
For a long time now, scholars and leaders of higher education have worried that multi-disciplinary research, semiautonomous academic centers, entrepreneurial activity, and commercial influences may erode the traditions and values of U.S. universities, turn the academy into a disciplinary hodgepodge and an academic marketplace. But some see these emerging, collaborative parts of the university as adaptive mechanisms that help the university evolve to meet the demands for new knowledge and knowledge transfer in more original and timely ways.
