I am writing a research proposal and I plan to approach it by dividing the most important functions of university into three categories--teaching, research and service.
Teaching will include all forms of education afforded to students.
Research broadly refers to all attempts at generating new knowledge.
Service refer to service to the monarchy, state, the public and in some situations, to the students as customers.
Do these categories sufficiently cover most functions of a university? Is there anything important that I could not include in these categories?
