The goals of a 21st century engaged university
These days a university’s engagement is a kaleidoscope. It extends far and wide and reaches into schools, colleges, industries, commerce, research and development, and employment of almost every kind.
Universities are ubiquitous throughout communities in every land. The sheer and simple presence of universities in public life is a fact of astounding proportions on a world scale: whereas once universities were a refuge from normal life, where young people in particular delayed their entry into work and ‘real life’, they are now engaging with the question of what their social purpose and function is in a fast changing and uncertain world. Universities are everyone’s business.
