Transform: the journal of Engaged Scholarship 4th edition Now Available

The Role of the Modern Civic University – Making of a City Region
The range, scope and reach of this edition is remarkable and the journal is hopefully evolving into a compendium and rich resource for those whose concerns lie in the burgeoning field of ‘university engagement.’ We are laying down markers here for contemporary workers in the fields of learning, teaching and research and creating an intellectual resource for all of those who want to take forward the critical examination of higher learning and scholarship in a world in which knowledge is exploding into availability. We are also making a mark for the future as we are forced to examine the deeply embedded assumptions and values of universities.
