Such reliable evidence as there is shows that, despite the increased attention given to U politics by the 3 main British parties in recent yrs, participation in S pol'al activities is slight, & genuine pol'al enthusiasm rare. Outside the party org's, the groups identified with the Universities and Left Review & the UN Students Association have, in their diff ways, achieved considerable success, but this emphasizes, rather than qualifies the estimate of the limited appeal of politics. The main reason for non-commitment among S's appears to be that they receive less encouragement to participate from their tutors who are themselves less pol'ly committed than previously, & that having grown up in WWII, they are not sustained by loyalties established when the party fight was over policies they take for granted.

Engagement is the vogue of relevant scholars into the twenty-first century. Yet there are concerns that scholarly objectivity requires detachment from society. The American experience with scholarly engagement comes from Land-Grant universities & extension. The Land-Grant principle emerged from the mandate to the Land-Grant colleges to improve the nation's agriculture. Agricultural science has been hugely productive because of the Land-Grant principle. The principle is general to all scholarship. The Land-Grant principle gives both intellectual & political power to engagement. Scholarship is made better substantially through the test of workability, a dimension of scholarly objectivity. The scholar is also made more skillful. The engagement making possible the test of workability makes the scholarship more relevant. Institutionalized access to the workable, relevant knowledge for those who need it generates substantial political power. At a time when universities, particularly public research universities, are seeking public support for more than their teaching, the strategies suggested by the Land-Grant principle are instructive. 1 Table, 29 References.

This paper gives an overview of new developments in conceptualizing universities as brands. Brand development in this sense is not an externally-oriented marketing instrument, but an internal strategy. In this internal brand development process, a university sorts out its developmental resources and challenges and structures an identity. Ten steps in this process of brand development are outlined and a concept of brand positioning specific to universities is introduced.
