University of Toledo's President Cites 'Cultural Divide' as Universities Focus on Economic Development
from The Toledo Blade
University of Toledo President Dr. Lloyd Jacobs, M.D., believes there is resistance to higher education focusing on universities funding economic development and investing in businesses to create jobs. He made his case during a state meeting focused on commercializing university and college research and technologies. "The cultural divide is extremely deep, very wide and will be crossed only with great difficulty," he told the Ohio Board of Regents' Technology Transfer and Commercialization Task Force.
