FEATURE
University of California Berkeley Sociologist Michael Buravoy delivered the first of his two Indiana University Patten Lectures on Tuesday dealing with what he calls Universities in Crisis. These crises spring primarily from the dwindling of public funds and the construction of an administrative class that tends toward profligacy.

He joined Interchange host Doug Storm in our WFHB Studios to discuss the crisis and what might be done about it.
