Global Connections, local impact

Tertiary institutions in the 21st Century are both globally connected and locally engaged, playing a key role in communities. They help to develop globally-minded citizens, acting as conduits to international partnerships, creating the conditions for industry collaboration and social innovation. They also act as agents of social change, inclusion and mobility.

This year's conference will address vital questions such as:

  • Against the backdrop of financial, environmental and political challenges how can leaders and policy makers develop a well-understood role for institutions in terms of their social obligation and knowledge economy impact?
  • What are the top priorities in ensuring national tertiary education is fit to shape societies of the future, meet the future needs of students, employers and communities?
  • How can global tertiary networks contribute to their achievement?
