This story reminds me of a chapter in "Caught in the Middle." In particular, the chapter about how research institutions should start working together instead of competing against each other. This way, research could get developed more quickly, and if we become more efficient as a region, we could become a greater part of the global economy. What do you suggest students do to help universities start thinking as a region?
I ask because I'm an undergrad at UIC, I have many friends who are graduate students at UIUC, and my sister's husband is a professor at UW Madison. We'd love to help!
