"""Description: How can you turn an English department into a revenue center? How do you grade students if they are ""customers"" you must please? How do you keep industry from dictating a university's research agenda? What happens when the life of the mind meets the bottom line?

He describes how universities ""brand"" themselves for greater appeal in the competition for top students
