Science and the University investigates the tremendous changes that have taken place in university research over the past several decades, gauging the current state of research in higher education and examining issues and challenges crucial to its future. Scientific research increasingly dominates the aims and agendas of many American universities, and this proliferation—and changes in the way research is conducted—has given rise to important questions about the interrelations of higher education, funding for scientific research, and government policy. The cost of doing science, the commercialization of university research, the changing composition and number of Ph.D. students, the effect of scientific research on other university programs—these are just a few of the many issues explored in this volume from the vantage points of scholars in such diverse fields as economics, biochemistry, genetics, and labor studies.

About the Author:

Paula E. Stephan is professor of economics at Georgia State University and coeditor of the two-volume Economics of Science and Innovation. Ronald G. Ehrenberg is the Irving M. Ives Professor of Industrial and Labor Relations and Economics and director of the Cornell Higher Education Research Institute at Cornell University and editor of What’s Happening to Public Higher Education.

Review:

“The university—a central institution in the emerging knowledge economy—is in the process of dramatic transformations. In this volume, Paula Stephan and Ronald Ehrenberg bring together scholars from a wide array of disciplines to address some of the most crucial changes underway in universities today. Grappling with matters ranging from how universities are funding their scientific research in an era of government belt-tightening to what roles universities can and should play in the commercial economy, the essays in this collection are important reading for anyone who cares about the future of higher education in the United States.”—Daniel Lee Kleinman, University of Wisconsin–Madison, series editor and author of Impure Cultures: University Biology and the World of Commerce
