Campus, Inc. : corporate power in the ivory tower / edited by Geoffry D. White with Flannery C. Hauck.

Amherst, N.Y. : Prometheus Books, 2000.
470 p. ; 24 cm.


Summary note
The university, as a core institution of democratic society, is increasingly threatened by the intrusion of big business. Campus, Inc. not only describes the threat of corporatization, but provides real-life strategies, campaigns, and solutions to the problem. A new era of student activism has rolled back the sale of sweatshop-produced items in campus stores; the re-emergence of unions has helped faculty organize to prevent "hostile takeovers" of our publicly funded institutions; and effective strategies to redemocratize the university are increasingly available.
