The authors contend that “academic capitalism,” defined as “the involvement of colleges and faculty in market-like behaviors,” has become a key feature of higher education in the United States. This article examines institutional practices in every sector of higher education. The authors urge academic faculty and professionals to engage more deeply in shaping and controlling both academic work and the relationship between the institution and the marketplace. Finally, the authors speak to the need to “republicize” colleges and universities, that is, to reaffirm the university’s public purposes and financing.
