This chapter presents former Stanford University president Gerhard Casper’s State of the University Address on May 12, 1994. He reiterated that any issue is open to discussion at the university and vowed to be responsive whenever possible. However, he also said that they could not work for Stanford’s future in an environment dominated by the politics of ultimatum. He also discusses two aspects of government–university interactions today that cause him concern: the serious side effects of direct regulation of essential activities and efforts to extend regulation into fundamental educational processes.

Keywords:   speeches, Stanford University, politics, government–university interaction
