Autonomy and External Control

The University in Search of the Golden Mean. The Erfurt Declaration Towards the Responsible University of the Twenty-first Century

aus der Reihe Erfurter Beiträge zur Hochschulforschung und Wissenschaftspolitik, Bd. 2


The subtitle clearly implies that it is not simply a matter of either / or, but a case of finding the right balance. The starting point suggests that the closer this proportion approximates to the "golden mean", the better it will be for the university to be able to fulfil its tasks in research and education and its other commitments to society. However, exactly how the university will search for, find and eventually adopt its ideal position with regard to its political, social economic and cultural roles in its spheres of influence, is for each university to decide for itself: universities in European democracies are called upon to carry out this venture for themselves. The group offering contributions to the volume comprises of leading representatives from universities in central eastern Europe as well in central and western Europe. The enclosed Erfurt Declaration on University Autonomy unanimously adopted by the reporting national representatives draws outlines of the responsible university of the 21st century. Wolff, K.
