Globalisation and the Responsibilities of the University

Multimedia: Webcast |

Synopsis:

The driving issue which confronts every university at this moment is the impact of globalisation - that convergence of forces that include new information, communication and transportation technologies, that create unprecedented opportunities to be engaged, connected, and present in different parts of the world.

The forces of globalisation are influencing the trajectories of our colleges and universities, ranging from the emergence of branch campuses in different parts of the world, to the migration of talent – the recruitment of students and faculty from all parts of the world, to the expansion of collaborative research projects, to the emergence and establishment of new universities seeking to achieve in the 21st Century, what universities like Oxford and Cambridge, Harvard and Yale, achieved in earlier centuries.

Dr. DeGioia will reflect on the different kinds of responses that he believes globalisation demands of us.
