During the 2014-2015 academic year, the University began a strategic planning process which examines a variety of issues related to research, innovation, and new relationships between academia and industry. In March of 2015 Chancellor Gallagher addressed the University community and elaborated on some of the possibilities. In part reacting to some of those comments faculty articulated some related concerns. These included:
1. Open Letter to Chancellor Gallagher -- Michael Goodhart
2. A suggestion that we examine Academy-Industry Relationships - Thomas Hales (Mathematics)
Here are Recommended Principles to Guide Academy-Industry Relationships from the AAUP.
