This lecture discusses the broad ideas that underlie the Robbins Report, as well as its passionate belief in the crucial value of universities to society. It addresses four broad issues that were considered by both Robbins and Dearing. These issues are concerned with the overall number of students going into higher education, the possibility of financial backing, further expansion, and concerns regarding the relations between universities and the State. The lecture expresses a worry over the gradual degradation of the universities, and stresses that high-ranking officials should help solve the problem of continuous underfunding.
