The university's value

When she was selected to head the University of Washington's Faculty Senate [in 1985], Donna Gerstenberger used her inaugural address to express her worry about a trend in American education—that of the need to "market" the university and align it more closely to business and industry.
"Our value is in being what we are and doing what we do, not the least of which is teaching students the value of a mind full of many things,"Professor Gerstenberger told her colleagues.
