Case Studies of the University in History uses the Harvard case method to foster an understanding of how scholars and other university leaders historically dealt with the problems and opportunities they faced in their day. The Part A sets up the problem and invites participants to explain what option they would have taken. The subsequent Part B (and often the Part C) explore the consequences of the decision taken in Part A.
