Nancy Cantor, Scholarship in Action
Momentum is growing to take public scholarship seriously
as a movement that will “challenge and reshape the relationship between our colleges and universities and the society of which they are a part.”As the Kellogg Commission said at the dawn of this new millennium, “The irreducible idea is that we [American higher education] exist to advance the commongood. . . the fundamental challenge with which we struggle is how to reshape our historic agreement with the American people so that it fits the times that are emerging instead of the times that have passed.”
