See also colleges.

Universities fulfill a number of social functions. Their stated objective is about education, similarly to schools, is but one of many perspectives on their social role.

Deep state relevance

It is interesting how certain universities seem to keep appearing in this encyclopaedia. See also Colleges. This is different in different nation states, although older, more academically reputed institutions tend to be preferred.

Subject specificity

Certain Universities have particular specialties relevant to deep politics. For example, the University of St Andrews has turned out a lot of "terror experts".

Dan Kovalik“I make $3,000 for my 3-credit course, sometimes teaching over 50 students in my class at one time. In turn, these students pay between $36,000 and $46,000 in tuition a year, depending on their state residency. Averaging this out to $40,000 a year on tuition, and assuming students take around 30 credits a year, I figure out that for my class of 50, the school brings in a total of $100,000 and gives me $3,000 of that. In other words, while I make a very meager pay, and absolutely no benefits, the Law School is making a hefty profit - a profit that is sucked up by the growing class of administrators and by the few tenured faculty left. Pretty nice for an allegedly nonprofit institution.”Dan Kovalik2021
Monte Overacre“Monte Overacre's most important job was recruiting overseas spies. He worked on the campus of a university (though he carefully guarded the identity of the university) in the San Diego area, where he managed a team posing as telecommunications academics, recruiting visiting foreign technology experts to spy for the U.S. back in their home countries-from South America to Europe, Africa to Asia-to keep the agency on top of new technological innovations. Under the guise of running a series of seminars on telecommunications, Overacre and his MXSCOPE team would invite scientists, engineers, and government and corporate officials from all over the world to come to San Diego. Once there, unwitting attendees would be scoped out by Overacre, evaluated, and targeted for recruitment as potential CIA agents, or "assets," after they returned to their home countries. The recruitment efforts were typically unsavory. "The old methods work even with the nerds, sometimes even better," he wrote. "Trips to massage parlors, strip clubs, wild bars with aggressive white women, etc., make these guys come unglued, just like any truck driver. Once you have gotten a guy laid and paid the bill for him, you have a friend for life. Eventually, the recruits would probably be handled by a CIA case officer working out of the U.S. embassy or, more frequently, operating under nonofficial cover, posing as an American businessman. By then, the new agents likely would be on the CIA’s payroll.”Mother Jones
