Can We Predict the Future of New Universities?

18 September 2018 (Tue) , 12pm - 1pm
At Classroom 16

As new universities get established to cater to the growing needs of mass higher education, they respond differently to the expectations and demands of their stakeholders that often compete with their research and teaching missions. An understanding of these responses, and how they shape the evolution and future of new universities, is vital to the design of national higher education systems. In this talk, Debananda discusses the role of regions in developing new universities, and presents a framework that explains if and how history of new universities can help predict their future paths. The talk is based on a study that was carried out in seven national-level higher educational institutions (HEIs) in India.

Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP at
