Summary

The term elite university refers to that institution that attracts a student body of exceptional capacity or at least a large proportion of students of outstanding intellectual ability. The elite university is essentially a fragile institution, vulnerable to political pressures, research problems, financial needs, federal support, and enrollment trends. The survival of the elite university is necessary for the maintenance of the excellence of ideas essential not only for the development of science and technology, but also for the attainment of a more humane, just, and civilized society. In order to survive, the university must make a sustained effort to explain its mission to the people and their elected representatives. (Author/PG)
