ON THE COVER: Is the importance of a university's physical campus fading? Will global electronic access to scholars dilute institutional affiliation? Will it be possible to get a Penn degree without ever laying eyes on this statue of founder Benjamin Franklin in front of College Hall? Provost Stanley Chodorow contemplates these and other possible effects of the electronic revolution.
