Description

The new millennium is a unique occasion for individuals and organisations to examine their existing role in society, to take stock and to make projections for the future. This is particularly true of educational institutions, all of which have large numbers of young people looking forward with anticipation and exhilaration to a new world of expanded opportunity and a seemingly unending fount of new knowledge. Foremost in this quest is the university, where new research in the sciences, medicine and the humanities is proceeding at a pace never before thought possible. The rate of acquisition of new information and knowledge poses new challenges for the traditional university. This book examines many crucial questions, looking at the role of a modern university in the new millennium and the question of academic freedom and university autonomy.show more
