"Higher education is a vision, not a calculation."

Thanks to Professor Jack Schneider for sharing "A Scholar's Quest," remarks made by Professor James March to a faculty seminar at Stanford Graduate School of Business.
A university is only incidentally a market. It is more essentially a temple —a temple dedicated to knowledge and a human spirit of inquiry. Itis a place where learning and scholarship are revered, not primarily for what they contribute to personal or social well being but for the vision of humanity that they symbolize, sustain, and pass on.
Do go read all of it.
