Abstract

This chapter argues that universities need breathing space to grow into world-class universities. The soul of universities lies in their scholars. Universities need to assemble the best minds and allow them the greatest degree of autonomy so they can produce fruitful research and nurture new generations of inquisitive, community-minded graduates. Once the bright minds are assembled, minimal intervention and maximum infrastructure support provide the fertile soil for world-class universities.
