Overview

Donald Kennedy has been at the front lines of the issues confounding the academy today. Examining teaching, graduate training, research, and their ethical context in the research university, Kennedy suggests that meaningful reform cannot take place until more rigorous standards of academic responsibility are embraced by both faculty and the administration. With vision and compassion, he offers an important antidote to recent attacks from without that decry the university and the professoriate, and calls upon the college community to counter those attacks by looking within and fulfilling its duties.
