Reviews

"It is interesting and encouraging to read of how some private universities in Latin America are engaging in research. Research certainly is not a characteristic strength of private universities in either the region or most of the world. Gregorutti and Delgado do us a service by pointing attention to exceptions to the traditional reality and to possibly emerging tendencies." - Daniel Levy, SUNY Distinguished Professor and Director of the Program for Research on Private Higher Education, State University of New York at Albany, USA

"Gregorutti and Delgado reflect on how the private sector has favorably impacted the strengthening of systems and institutions. Conceptual analysis and specific experiences from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, and Uruguay converge on the idea of the notable contributions of private universities in the growing, fostering, and consolidation of the research mission of the university." - Pedro Henríquez Guajardo, Director UNESCO/IESALC, Venezuela

"This edited volume provides groundbreaking insights into the work of private universities in Latin America in the areas of science, technology and innovation (STI). The editors have assembled a compelling set of studies from several countries that illustrates the accomplishments of private universities in Latin America with respect to the advancement of STI. An important contribution to the comparative higher education literature, the book can serve as a reference as well as graduate course text." - John C. Weidman, Professor of Higher and International Development Education, University of Pittsburgh, USA
