Universities Have the Responsibility to Tackle the World's Toughest Problems
Klitgaard, Robert
Chronicle of Higher Education, v54 n21 pA1 Feb 2008
Issues that seem intractable not only dominate our news but paralyze our governments. Corruption. Immigration. Religious and cultural conflict. When such issues are raised, too often we roll our eyes and give up before we begin. Using the example of corruption, the author presents ideas for how colleges and universities can help resolve intractable issues: (1) Provide examples, especially of success; (2) Help unpack and reframe; (3) Convene; and (4) Establish networks.
