Students, Universities and the Private Sector

This paper discusses decision-making dynamics and roles that emerge when post-secondary institutions partner with the private sector to pursue common goals and projects. In particular, it refers to three types of public- private partnership (PPP) that occur commonly in the PSE sector: research projects with the private sector, academic programs linked to private sector groups, and the use of private entities to provide teaching, research, or administrative services normally handled by institutions.
