Clarence Walton-Master Teacher

  • Boris Yavitz
Part of the Issues in Business Ethics book series (IBET, volume 11)


Discussants of academic careers never tire of invoking the image of the “three-legged stool“—research, teaching and collegial service—as the solid foundation for advancement and tenure. They also readily acknowledge that the more prestigious the institution, the more it tends to devalue the importance of the second leg: teaching. An unfortunate by-product of this value system is the downgrading of the relevance and significance of students in university life. It was, therefore, with great pleasure that I accepted the invitation to address the subject of Clarence Walton the Teacher.
