Cardinal rules 2

三月 7, 2003

Dennis Hayes claims that the sole purpose of the university is research and that "the only test of the success of university 'teaching' is whether it produces a new generation of creative and critical academics".

The research university was invented only in the 19th century.

The main business of all but the most research-intensive universities is to teach undergraduates. Only a small proportion of graduates become academics, and the tail is wagging the dog if those who do not become academics are branded as failures.
