The Idea of a University

Since the 1930s the role of universities has changed dramatically, from that of institutions attended by a small intellectual or social elite to one where attendance has become more or less obligatory for a wide range of occupations and social classes. As late-1990s developments in higher education suggest that a concept of a university will continue to be redefined, this text looks at the past, present and possible future changes in the nature of universities, including: the foundation of the "modern" European universities; American and European experiences and their respective models of a university; the role of the "new" post-1992 universities in Britain; and the potential impact of new technologies on universities and teaching methods. The contributors also look at the motivation behind the various interested parties in higher education reform - academics, administrators, politicians and the students themselves - in an attempt to determine how universities will be shaped in the future.
