Homework Assignment 8
- For your final writing assignment, I want you to write a two to five page,
typed (or word processed) essay about the nature and purpose of the
university. I want you to include the student's viewpoint as well as that
of at least two professors---you will need to schedule an office appointment
for this interview with at least two of your professors (excluding me).
- Be sure that you address the following points:
- How is a university different from a vo-tech school?
- Is the primary purpose to "educate" students or to provide a place
for the faculty to practice their "scholarship?"
- How is the university supported---who pays?
