DuBois/ West: Lessons for Higher Education Institutions

”The function of the university is not simply to teach breadwinning, or to furnish teachers for the public schools, or to be a centre of polite society; it is, above all, to be the organ of that fine adjustment between real life and the growing knowledge of life, an adjustment which forms the secret of civilization.”

 – W. E. B. Dubois

Lessons often rest in the words of historical fore-parents like DuBois. Revisit the “why” of higher education–the “why.” Cornel West is a reminder of “what” needs to be revisited.
