Imagining the 21st Century Urban University: Global Perspectives on Policy and Practice
Imagining the 21st Century Urban University promotes critical, policy-relevant dialogue on the role of universities, and their relationship with cities, in a rapidly urbanizing and globalizing world. Through empirical research and workshop discussions held in Atlanta, Singapore and Cape Town, South Africa, global perspectives from academic researchers, university administrators, and public policy officials provide a portrait of cutting-edge developments at the interface of higher education and urban society. In doing so, the project offers an opportunity to reappraise the university as a crucial collective actor both responding to and reshaping the landscapes of global urbanization.
