This article focuses on the relationship between the business community and higher education with reference to the Business-Higher Education Forum which met recently in Scottsdale. Ed Donley the CEO of Air Products, is the new chairman of the Forum, which convenes periodically to bring leaders of American industry and academia together for personal dialogue at the biggest level. The presidents of the universities attend so they can got money from industry, and the presidents of the companies come so they can get their kids into college. Of course all such suspicions are greatly exaggerated, but there is enough money flowing from business to higher education today to stimulate any clear-thinking business leader to question the motives of university presidents, who can be pretty devious in their search for new ways to pay the bills.
