Universities' Competition(大学的竞争)

录音原文
Today a university like the LSE certainly has to acknowledge that it is in competition for the best students, all of whom have choices they can exercise, and many of them choices which run across national and continental borders. We are in competition, too, for staff. The academic job market is one of the most global there is. And in the 21st century English is the new Latin, so universities in English speaking countries are exposed to more intensive competition than those elsewhere. We are in competition for government funding, through the assessment of research quality. We are in competition for research contracts, from public and private sector sources, and indeed we are in competition for the philanthropic (adj.慈善的) pound (n.捐款,英镑). Many of our own donors were at more than one university, and indeed think of the LSEs requests alongside those of other charities to which they are committed. That is a competitive environment which is particularly visible to a Vice-Chancellor.
今天,像伦敦政治经济学院这样的大学肯定必须承认,它在竞争最优秀的学生,每个人都有自己可以行使的选择,而且其中许多选择都跨越了国家和大陆边界。我们也在为员工竞争。学术工作市场是全球最具发展潜力的市场之一。在21世纪,英语是新的拉丁语,因此英语国家的大学比其他国家的大学所面临的竞争更加激烈。通过评估研究质量,我们正在争夺政府资金。我们正在竞争来自公共和私营部门来源的研究合同,并且实际上我们正在竞争慈善捐款(n。捐款,英镑)。我们自己的许多捐助者都在不止一所大学就读,确实想到了伦敦政治经济学院的要求以及他们所承诺的其他慈善机构的要求。那是一个竞争环境,对副校长来说尤其明显。
