Problem

Erosion of university autonomy

Claim:
Universities must always be prepared to challenge the government's creeping control of the intellectual agenda through its patronage of particular lines of enquiry and its unnecessary involvement in what should best be left to universities. A corollary of university autonomy is, however, an obligation on universities to be passionate in their efforts to contribute to scholarship and in the quality of their teaching to undergraduates and supervision of postgraduates. Universities must ensure that they establish learning contexts in which all students have opportunities of developing techniques of problems solving and habits of continuous and life-long learning.
