University Autonomy

University Autonomy

Dear Sir,

So it seems that no one is really worried about the fact that business firms are influencing the university (see the article "Big Business Gag on University" — Salient 27/6/73). Students as usual sit on their arses oblivious to the fact that big business is harming the "autonomy" of the University.

Staff members, many of whom are all too ready to write in business and other magazines, have been slow to write to Salient defending their role as employees and slaves of "private enterprise".

All this reinforces my feeling that most people in this institution are too self-centred to worry about the things that go on in this place which affect people other than themselves.
