"Being Present in the World": A Conversation with Professor Jose Marques dos Santos
Katz, Richard N.; Dodds, Ted
EDUCAUSE Review, v43 n1 p34-36, 38, 40 Jan-Feb 2008
The University of Porto was awarded the European University Information Systems (EUNIS) Elite Award for its innovative application of information technology to a European university. This university--nearly one hundred years old--is pressing hard, on a number of fronts, to place itself in the top rank of European universities. The Rector of the University of Porto, Professor Jose Marques dos Santos, is leading the effort. He is hoping to create a unity of purpose, presence, message, and services that will not only place students at the center of the university's work but also respect the highly decentralized structure and governance of the institution. In this article, the authors present an interview with Professor Jose Marques dos Santos wherein he talked about the strategies employed at the University of Porto to make it to the forefront of European universities. He also discussed his views on internationalization and his forecasts about the European higher education in ten years.
