Our Universities: Roots

Third in a Series on Research

J.E. Lawrence, in The Nebraska State Journal in 1949 regarding pioneer life and character, wrote: "New land is harsh, and vigorous, and sturdy. It scorns evidence of weakness. There is nothing of sham or hypocrisy in it. It is what it is, without apology."

So too should be the case with research and scholarship at any institution that calls itself a university. It is the cause of all else when configured appropriately.
