Publicly Engaged Scholars : Next-Generation Engagement and the Future of Higher Education (Hardcover)
about this item
The concern that the democratic purposes of higher education, and its foundation as a public good is being undermined, together with the realization that existing structures are unsuited to addressing today’s complex societal problems, and that our institutions are failing an increasingly diverse population, are all giving rise to questioning the current model of the university.This book presents the voices of a new generation of scholars, educators, and practitioners who are committed to civic renewal and the public purposes of higher education. They question existing policies, structures, and practices, and put forward new forms of engagement that can help to shape and transform higher education to align it with societal needs.
