Reflections on University and Urban Public University
Vichit-Vadakan, Juree
Metropolitan Universities, v18 n3 p109-118 2007
This paper discusses the model of the "Western university" from the viewpoint of a non-Western person. The concept of an "Urban Public University" is then discussed and analyzed in terms of its role and relevance in today's context. The paper further argues that while universities are non-static, and while their changes and adaptations to new conditions are essential, there are specific roles that universities as an institution should continue to uphold.
