Abstract:
The overarching theme of the 2000 symposia has been globalization and its effects on universities. (The term “university” should be understood as shorthand for the increasingly broad spectrum of higher education institutions, or HEIs. These terms are used largely interchangeably in this report.) The symposia have examined the 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
Discussion at the September symposium built upon themes discussed at previous symposia, but with a new emphasis. Rather than focus on issues of immediate concern to present university leadership, the symposium considered whether the “threat” of globalization is, in fact, an opportunity to create a new paradigm for higher education policy. Participants discussed possible strategies as well as factors shaping universities’ future. Reflecting the new emphasis, 10 faculty led the 40 fellows-chosen from the ranks of the next generation of university leaders-through an intensive program of plenary sessions and working groups. In all, 16 countries in Europe, the Russian Federation, North America, China and South Africa, as well as a number of international organizations, were represented.
