AbstractAfter reviewing the history of university partnerships, the author discusses corporate goals in these partnerships and emphasizes the federal role in facilitating partnerships of this kind. The author also provides a social and ethical assessment of the advantages and conflicts that can arise in these conflicts. The author concludes by analyzing how university-industry partnerships present difficult conflict of interest problems that are rarely dealt in a satisfactory manner by universities.
