A widely-publicized, 2-year controversy at the University of Pennsylvania was recently resolved by the decision of the Board of Trustees to terminate University participation in two chemical and biological warfare research contracts. The controversy at Penn involved a number of broad issues, including the appropriateness of classified research on the campus, the implications of the growth of externally financed, contract research, the relevance of content in deciding on University sponsorship of research contracts, and the role of the faculty in University policy-making. Despite the Trustees' decision, these broader questions remain unresolved.
