Through the threefold lens of universities as sources, anchors, and hubs, Owen-Smith calls for a rekindling of discussion about “the public good” that supports as infrastructure the ability of the private sphere to thrive.

Although his argument is not simple and easy, detailed historical examples buttress his by: 6. Research Universities and the Public Good offers a unique view of how universities work, what their purpose is, and why they are important. Countering recent arguments that we should "unbundle" or "disrupt" higher education, Jason Owen-Smith argues that research universities are valuable gems that deserve support.

Jason Owen-Smith, executive director of the Institute for Research on Innovation and Science (IRIS) at the University of Michigan and a researcher with work covered previously by SSTI, has written a book explaining the benefits of university R&D. Research Universities and the Public Good: Discovery for an Uncertain Future (Stanford University Press) provides an accessible.

For those engaged in the various types of planning required in higher education (academic, administrative, budget, facilities, and strategic/institutional), reading Research Universities and the Public Good will feel very like sitting down to a pre-planning interview with a member of the research faculty.

While Jason Owen-Smith’s book is focused exclusively on research universities. The group, including schools like M.I.T. and Stanford, aims to train the next generation of leaders to develop and regulate technology for the public good.

Institutes of technology and polytechnics have existed at least universities and the public good book the 18th century, but became popular after World War II with the expansion of engineering education and technical education, associated with the new needs created by some cases, polytechnics or institutes of technology are engineering schools or technical colleges.

Book Description: This book commemorates the Illinois conference, a celebration of interdisciplinary research at Illinois on the occasion of the university's th anniversary. Across six disparate themes, leading scholars from at home and abroad reflected on what research is most needed today to sustain our world.

This book should be of great interest to faculty members and students, as well as those parents, legislators, policymakers, and other area stakeholders who have a vested interest in the well-being of America’s original public universities. Gavazzi and Gee's book is on the future of Land-grant universities but the book has implications far beyond the Land-grants.

The authors, long-time leaders of public higher education, have personal experience and unique perspectives on the challenges s: "In this book, Jason Owen-Smith integrates innovative with previously disarticulated data to measure the outputs of our nation's research universities, institutions that prepare us for an increasingly complex future.

In so doing, he compellingly reveals the mechanisms and pathways that produce positive societal results.".
