Synopsis: This collection of essays on the character, administration, and management of research universities concentrates on issues of systematic planning, planning models, teaching approaches, and management associated with the aims and methods of operations research. The book also deals with more general concerns about the management of universities and university resources, and with some of the applications of operations-research and statistical tools that have moved outside university settings.

From the Back Cover: The research university is one of the most characteristic and important institutions of our time. It is an extremely complex entity, seeking to achieve a variety of aims and responding to a multiplicity of pressures. Its principal obligation is to educate students and to prepare them to live in and contribute to society. To serve this function, knowledge must be collected, organized, and disseminated, but perhaps even more important, new knowledge must be created. The knowledge so developed and imparted must ultimately be carried out into society, largely through former students but also by other means. The present volume is a collection of 30 essays on the character, administration, and management of research universities, with special emphasis on the perspective of statistics and operations research. It thus concentrates on issues of systematic planning, planning models, teaching approaches, and management associated with the aims and methods of operations research, although it also deals with more general concerns about the management of universities and university resources, and with some of the applications of operations-research and statistical tools that have moved outside university settings.
