Yesterday I posted this on the blogg of the American Chesterton Society which alludes to a possible new University. (See the PS at the very end of the post.) In my consideration of Newman and Jaki as well as Chesterton, I found two very important quotes which I think you will appreciate.
I think that the tripartite division of functions at a college or university should be carefully respected: students should learn, instead of trying to teach; the faculty should teach instead of trying to run the place; the administration should do its job unfettered, though not to the point of aggravating the teachers by over-administering them.

If anything bears witness to the modernity of the Middle Ages, universities do. Modern life is inconceivable without universities, but this was no less true of medieval life which saw their rise in the first place.
