Breakthroughs on the futures of higher education

UNESCO Chair in Community-Based Research and Social Responsibility in Higher Education contribute to breakthroughs on the futures of higher education

Budd Hall and Rajesh Tandon

As many of you may know, our UNESCO Chair was born out of the 2’nd UNESCO World Conference on Higher Education in 2009. The third UNESCO World Higher Education Conference and World Higher Education Week has just finished. Since our Chair was launched in 2012, we have been working with many of you and your networks to raise awareness of the importance of community-based participatory research, Indigenous and multiple ways of knowing, interdisciplinarity in the face of global challenges, community-university engagement, the role of open science and an ethics of social responsibility as foundational to a revitalized and transformative higher education. We are delighted to say that these messages as well as others have found their way into all the major reports released by UNESCO and GUNi during the technical conference. Links to all the major reports are included in the report attached.
