Sebastian D.G. Knowles

University Press of Florida

Chapter 1 argues that the university is in crisis, hamstrung by fear of corporate liability, the loss of due process, and the rise of optics over truth as a university value. The students are the victims of an educational environment that has no tolerance for error. The modern university is “At Fault”: at a fault line, where the principles of empathy and understanding are at war with the principles of institutional cowardice.

Keywords:   fault, optics, empathy, university in crisis
