Interview Summary

In this interview, A.D. Albright continues to address Dr. Otis Singletary's role as president of UK. He states that the Singletary years brought both institutional change and greater stability. Albright examines the job of a university president, and states that universities are starting to emulate the corporate world in some of their practices. He discusses the role of university libraries, and then describes student government at UK during the early 1970s. Albright testified before a grand jury on the student movements on campus during this time and recalls that he told the jury that the student movement on campus was being overplayed. He describes the differences between student activists during the 1970s and students in the 1980s, explaining that students are more institutionally oriented and more concerned with majoring in a subject that will eventually make them money.
