Independent centers or institutes

  • Mary E. Hunt


Centers often offer freedoms that are not found in traditional academic institutions, but they can also be less institutionally stable. There is a trend for some large institutions to handle innovative issues and/or issues they want to marginalize (such as those involving women and racial/ethnic minorities) through centers. In some cases, the center moves to the center; in other cases the center is really on the margin.
