Globalization and the University: A Leadership Development Seminar 
The Impact of Globalization on Higher Education
02 Feb - 06 Feb, 2000
 The Regional Role of Russian Universities in the Context of Globalization

Abstract:

The overarching theme of the 1999 symposia was globalization and its effects on institutions. Due to the relevance of this issue facing universities today, the Universities Project is continuing the theme of globalization at its symposia in 2000. As in 1999, the symposia will examine this phenomenon through the prism of the five Universities Projects topics:

  1. University management and finance
  2. Academic structure and governance within the university
  3. Meeting student needs
  4. Technology in higher education
  5. The role of the university in the emerging civil society

While considering the impact of globalization on higher education, the February 2000 symposium paid particular attention to the role of universities in Southeast Europe, particularly in the former Yugoslavia. Specifically, symposium participants considered the issue of the emergence of civil society in ethnically diverse regions recently (or currently) in conflict and the role universities may play in resolving conflict and encouraging the emergence of civil society. This emphasis emerges from the Universities Project’s fifth core theme, that of the role of the university in civil society.  A total of 40 senior university administrators and higher education specialists representing 15 countries in Europe and North America took part in the symposium.

The newsletter “Europe and the Balkans” reports on this symposium in its February 2000 issue, available on the web at the following url: www.spfo.unibo.it/balkans/eurobalk.html
