Book Description
Universities for a New World takes the centenary of the Association of Commonwealth Universities in 2013 as a point of departure to explore what the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has evocatively termed the international ‘Academic Revolution’ in modern higher education.

The book features critical and interrelated essays on that protean global ‘revolution’ in higher education provision—the gains as well as the losses. Transformation may have been inevitable, but progress towards greater participation rates has not always been followed with quality service to students or the society at large. Measuring those changes to universities since 1913 is inherently difficult as they are also still proceeding apace. The book accordingly also offers informed perspectives on the complex future(s) of universities in the 21st century—in which, paradoxically, further change is likely to be the only constant.

The social sample considered in the book is focused on the 54 jurisdictions of the worldwide ‘Commonwealth of Nations’—but with connectional comparisons and connections to broader international developments in higher education. And, at a time when ‘networks’ have become a critical feature of higher educational developments, this book explores the utility of a global associative membership group through the capacity-building role of this oldest of global university networks (1913–2013).

Contributions to this book draw from the latest social science literature in the growing field of higher education research and publications, as well as the contributors’ own deep involvement with executive leadership in universities, policy development and scholarship on higher education. Policy, theory and praxis are all here integrated.
