Description

For 50 years, the quality of education offered by Canadian universities and colleges steadily improved, along with access to these institutions. By the end of the 1990s, these gains were in danger.

As tuition fees increased, universities made new and often secret arrangements with the private sector; as courses and research were offered up for sale, Canada's institutions of higher learning were at risk of losing sight of the public interest. In this volume respected scholars--including Ursula Franklin, Dr. Nancy Olivieri, and William Bruneau--examine the many issues surrounding the commercialization of colleges and universities.

The Corporate Campus offers penetrating analyses of the threats posed by remodelling post-secondary institutions along corporate lines.
