Abstract

The challenges which higher education currently face are discussed in this collection from a unique and radical perspective: that of universities contributing to the re-creation of their own communities, and in turn being re-made by those communities. The question of community is at the heart of the analysis.

This perspective involves questioning the notion of community. There is an evident contradiction between a university which serves a local economic community through business links and one which defines service to the community as the empowerment through education of the diverse groups of people living in its neighbourhood.

Using the insights gained from this approach, the contributors look to what the very notion of a university might be in the late twentieth century.
