Bruised by negative publicity for everything from uncontrolled prices to abetting “illegal file-sharing,” higher education struggles to educate a new generation of students and provide an innovative rich environment for its researchers in an increasingly competitive global market and is at risk of losing its relative autonomy because of the encroaching influences of government regulation, commoditization of information and knowledge, and commercialization of its services.
Tracy Mitrano, Director of IT Policy and University Computer Policy and Law Program at Cornell University discusses how higher education is at risk as our millennial institution poises itself for another 1,000 years.
