For example, flagship state universities and other land grant campuses usually have schools of nursing, home economics, library science, and education, all heavily skewed toward women, and schools of engineering, technology, agriculture, and other traditionally maledominated fields. Such divisions may be absent or very small in other universities, and in any case the balance among them may fluctuate widely.

In brief, it should be at once a forum and a repository. " For those of us who care about access to education, one potential strength ofConcord U. " Moreover, Concord is less expensive than other law schools. "The cost, $4,200 a year for a fouryear law degree program, will be far below the cost at most private universities and even less than at many public ones" (Arenson 1998).

For the research university will not survive unless it articulates values that both appeal to new learners and distinguish it from the competition from other providers that will inexorably grow. I have often wondered why a university's statement of values can be so boring-to people who write about universities, live in them, read about them, or pay for them.
