    Excerpt from Academic and Industrial Efficiency: A Report to the Carnegie Foundation, for the Advancement of Teaching The reason for such a study as is set in the present bulletin is found partly in the existence in the college of new and large problems and partly in the criticism of American colleges and universities made during the past few years by business men, I believe that American men of education have faith in the future of the American college, and that they welcome any effort on the part of the business community or other intelligent men interested in education to better either the educational organization or the educational curriculum. This study is offered from the viewpoint of one outside college work who has to do in the main with the study of the efficiency of industrial establishments. The administrative organization of American institutions of higher learning more nearly resembles business organizations than do those of most countries. The machinery of organization, with a president, a board of trustees, and a staff of deans and assistants, resembles closely the business organization of a corporation, with its president, its board of directors, and its heads of departments. One of the questions most frequently asked by foreigners concerning American institutions is, whether this organization, business-like at least in appearance, is consistent with academic freedom and elasticity, and whether it furnishes results comparable in efficiency with the large measure of authority vested in it. One may distinguish roughly three different aspects of American university activity, in reference to each of which it will naturally be asked how far criticism from the standpoint of the present bulletin is pertinent. First, in so far as the American university handles money and deals with questions of effective organization and administration, any experience derived from the industrial world is distinctly applicable. Second, there is apparently a realm to which the industrial point of view is obviously inapplicable. The manufacturer must know in terms of dollars and cents the actual cost of every step he takes and of every product he turns out; and even when he carries on some particular form of activity at a loss, it is on the basis of a calculation that he will create ultimately a market sufficiently large to convert the loss into final gain. In the upper regions of academic activity, namely, in the field of research, no such close or consistent correlation between work and expense is feasible. A certain degree of irresponsibility must be conceded to the investigator. He must be allowed to take large chances, if his judgment approve. The ultimate outcome of an expensive research may be slight, just as the ultimate outcome of an inexpensive research may be extremely precious or profitable.
