and see:"Universities Cannot Escape History, But Can They Make It?" Cristina González, Professor of Spanish and Education, UC Davis from 2012 Reflecting on Clark Kerr’s The Uses of the University, Professor González argues that universities must try to be an uplifting agent in this time of crisis. She further maintains that, since administrations now are focused almost exclusively on coping, it is up to faculties to lead.
