DESCRIPTION

Over the past decade, the Glion Colloquium has established itself as an influential resource in addressing the challenges, roles and responsibilities of the world’s research universities. This book presents the papers and discussion summaries from the VIII Glion Colloquium held in June 2011 in Glion-above-Montreux, Switzerland, where university leaders from around the world gathered to consider the role of research universities in addressing the challenges of global sustainability in the broadest sense, including climate, environmental, economic, health, poverty and geopolitical concerns. Those at the Colloquium discussed not only how research universities are adapting to the imperatives of global sustainability (e.g., social diversity, resource management, academic programs, research and scholarship), but also how universities can develop new curricula, student experiences, research paradigms, social engagement and international alliances to better address the challenges of global sustainability, while producing globally identified citizens.  The Colloquium also considered the implications of these profound economic, demographic, technological and political changes for the sustainability of the research university itself.
