As Indian Universities Go Neoliberal, Protests by Students Offer a Ray of Hope | The Wire

Mohan J Dutta writes in The Wire:

Critical thinking and analysis are mere branding tools in glossy brochures, while the goal of administering the university becomes one of producing homogenous robots.

The neoliberal university is less a space for critical engagement, debate and inquiry, and more a skills factory for the technocratic workplaces owned by transnational capital. In the neoliberal university the student is a product, packaged for the marketplace in marketing slogans and brand identities. Professors are measured in economic terms of productivity and efficiency and cast in the branding race.
