Significance implications

Significance & Implications

“There is an old saying among college presidents that the modern university might be viewed as a fragile academic enterprise, delicately balanced between the medical center at one end of the campus and the athletic department at the other. The former can threaten the institution financially; the latter puts at risk the university’s integrity, reputation, and academic priorities.”

(Duderstadt, 2000, p. vii)
