Stanley Katz (Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University) Monday, November 8, 2010 / 4:00 PM McCune Conference Room, 6020 HSSB The financial crisis of the past two years looks like its becoming structural, especially in the public universities.  Is privatization the answer, at least for the "elite" state sector in higher education?  If so, what are the implications both for the elites and "the rest"?  A related question is what can/will replace the traditional, if nervous, balance between research and instruction in universities?  How do we balance the growing pressures for greater inclusion of the college age cohort, and the growing  cost of increasingly specialized research?  The post-World War II history of higher education, with the emergence of the multiversity, has been one of more or less successful adaptation of traditional organizational structures.  But haven't we reached the point at which we can no longer add epicycles without destroying the basic structure of higher education?
