The external fortunes of our universities fluctuate with the changing mood of the Canadian public. For some decades they were taken for granted, developed slowly and only moderately supported. Then, almost abruptly, they were swiftly expanded, with the provision of long overdue resources. After a few years of such large favour, dis— enchantment is now thought to cloud our prospects, as taxpayers fret over expense, and students grumble about vocational relevance. But universities have their own inner accountability. Do they discharge their traditional and fundamental function to preserve, impart and expand knowledge? If so, they can confront the present doubts, as we do at the University of Windsor, with confidence that they do make a dynamic contribution to the enrichment of Canadian society and to the enlargement of the awareness of our students.
