The unique mission of educational institutions involves not just the interaction between teachers and learners, but also the operation of these institutions in the broader community. It is managing workforces that combine Ph.D.s, administrators, and service-related staff. It is sustaining and expanding buildings and real estate holdings. It is managing and growing endowments to insure the education of future generations. It is protecting the intellectual property created by scholars and scientists and facilitating appropriate commercialization of their work. And, it is influencing policy makers whose decisions affect education.
