The Global Quest to Build World-Class Universities: Toward a Social Justice Agenda
Rhoads, Robert A.; Li, Shuai; Ilano, Lauren
New Directions for Higher Education, n168 p27-39 Win 2014
This chapter provides a critical perspective on the global quest to build world-class universities (WCUs), including global "ranking mania," excessive emphasis on university branding, and the attending threats to the traditional public good mission of the university. Alternatively, we offer suggestions on how rankings may be used to advance a social justice vision of WCUs.
