Quote of the Day

“What’s the purpose of this institution? I would say it’s to conceive and promote teaching and learning as a public good, not as a private good. Everything we do can be informed by that question. When we look at for-profit universities that are using for-profit technologies to create new industries, it may not only be presence that’s lost, it may be a certain conception of knowledge, teaching, and learning as a public good rather than a private one.”

-Michael Sandel, HILT Symposium, Feb. 3, 2012
