Mission transformation, multiplicity, and complexity are analyzed. The medieval university emphasizes teaching. Thereafter, the early modern university adopts nationalization (service to the nation-state). The formative U.S. college advances democratization. Simultaneously, the German university promotes research. The modern American university elevates public service. Today's rapid globalization suggests a new mission: internationalization.
