Is the University Worth Saving?
How does the state of the university relate to the state of society? We believe in the university as a site for exploration, an incubator of advanced thinking, a training ground for future leaders, and a place where we learn how to disagree. But saving the university is not the same as preserving the status quo. It might require a reimagining of how and why the university serves the common good. After all, if this thread of our social fabric is torn out, what else becomes distorted?
