Princeton University[ edit ] Gutmann taught at Princeton University from to In , she became the first Laurance S. Rockefeller University Professor at Princeton and the founding director of its University Center for Human Values, among the first and best-endowed university-wide multi-disciplinary ethics centers in the world. In she renewed and updated her vision with the Penn Compact ,  recommitting the university to these ideals and outlining the next steps: First, to increase inclusion at the University with increases in faculty and student diversity.
It was an unusually broad-based campaign, attracting gifts from nearly , donors. Gutmann made Penn one of the handful of universities in the country that substitute grants for loans for any undergraduate student with financial need. In , one out of eight incoming Penn students were the first in their families to attend college, up from one out of 20 in Gutmann said that the Marshall Lab property has "infinite possibilities" as a place to nurture startups and " technology transfer ", where faculty with "great discoveries can attract venture capital" and bring ideas to market.
A large, red-letter sign reads "Pennovation" over the three-story, 58,square foot facility. Under her superb leadership, Penn is a stronger and more vibrant institution than at any time in its storied history. In a recent ranking of US political scientists in PhD-granting departments, she is ranked second-highest in citations among all political theorists, eighth-highest among all women political scientists, and has been cited more than any other political scientist at the University of Pennsylvania.
The book addresses the central questions in the political theory of education: How should a democratic society make decisions about education? What should children be taught? How should citizens be educated? It was reviewed in Ethics as "the finest contribution to the literature on democratic education of the last seventy years" and fostered a revival of interest in the relationship between democracy and education. The book also takes on some contemporary scholarly debates: What is the appropriate response of democratic education to the challenge of multiculturalism?
Should schools try to cultivate patriotic or cosmopolitan sentiments among students? Democracy and Disagreement calls for more reasoned and respectful argument in everyday politics. Democracy and Disagreement has been praised as an effective remedy for polarized politics and criticized as impractical, as evidenced in a collection of pro and con essays published in Deliberative Politics, edited by Stephen Macedo.
Defenders argue that more and better political deliberation can help all citizens. In Identity in Democracy , Gutmann argues that identity groups as such are neither friends nor enemies of democratic justice.
She analyzes the legitimate but also problematic parts played by group identity in democratic politics and draws distinctions among the various types of identity group politics.
She further developed this perspective in her nationally recognized  Penn Commencement speech, "Think Uniquely, Stand United," in which she said that ". Uniqueness and unity are the twin pillars of a strong pluralism. We thrive when we combine unity of shared values with our unique perspectives on life. It has never been more important that we think uniquely while we stand united. The authors posit that the difficulty of compromise is built into the democratic process itself, but so is the need for it.
A better understanding and appreciation of compromise might be especially useful in this time of political polarization. Until recently, who would have thought it necessary to offer Americans advice in the ways of compromise? We used to enjoy a reputation for being a practical-minded people, our politicians being regarded as an all-too-flexible species. But something has changed, and according to Gutmann and Thompson, the change has to do with the relation of campaigning and governing Gutmann and Thompson end their book with recommendations to strengthen the spirit and practice of compromise.
I wish every policymaker would read it". In , the Association of American Universities elected Gutmann as chair of its board of directors for a one-year term. She was also among the leaders of a select group of presidents of research universities throughout the world that advised the United Nations Secretary-General on a range of global issues, including academic freedom, mass migration, international development, and the social responsibilities of universities, call the Global Colloquium of University Presidents.
