Summary

A 1994 meeting to discuss current stresses on the university research system brought together faculty and administrators from 13 research institutions, federal research-sponsoring agencies, members of Congress, and interested professional association and philanthropic foundation representatives. Participants acknowledged that the system of academic research in the United State is increasingly troubled and suggested the reason is that the compact between the federal government and research universities articulated half a century ago by Vannevar Bush has eroded. From a once-elite dialogue between a limited number of scientists and government policy makers, the research enterprise has moved into a period of broader popular scrutiny and heightened expectations, and the public and its elected officials feel that they have a stake in the academic process. These changes suggest a need for fundamental policy changes. Discussion at the conference focused on six major policy issues: (1) creating and communicating priorities in research and education; (2) balancing research and education activities; (3) facilitating multi-disciplinary research and education; (4) identifying patterns of institutional support for research; (5) restoring a sense of community on campus; and (6) developing relationships with new partners in research. The report includes summaries of the discussions of each of these issues and suggestions for action and change. (JB)
