Freedom of Teaching in the United States (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Freedom of Teaching in the United States This is equivalent to saying that an institution whose primary function is research has a status different from that of a teaching institution. To the extent that its resources are devoted to research the university is distinct from the college. The college stands for discipline in known facts rather than for the discovery of new ones. The case for an orderly conformity is stronger here, because the college has to deal with a stage of the educational process which is preparatory to responsible freedom. It is also an agency through which the social appropriation of truth may proceed. Its efficiency in this function is to be measured largely by its alertness in catching and passing on into the social system scientific gains which research has acquired and tested.
