April 6, 2009

Few colleges have transformed themselves as radically--and rapidly. Now, in its quest for greater prominence, the school has come to a crossroads, many administrators, faculty, and outside observers say. Seeking to reconcile its roots with its ambitions, the university is taking a hard look at not only its direction, but its identity.
