Accountability and Relevance

The central theme during 2015 edition of the Global Perspectives Program asked participants to contemplate issues and challenges pertinent to our common future in the global higher education arena with respect to Accountability and Relevance. Rooted in research, but with an eye toward the future, the 2015 GPP cohort dedicated specific attention to three key areas:

  1. The global university: to whom is it accountable?
  2. Graduate students and postdocs: importance to higher education?
  3. Degrees: public or private good?

This publication presents written contributions from each member of the 2015 GPP cohort. Participants were free to report on some aspect of the year’s central theme or select another topic pertinent to global higher education. Together these contributions ask important questions and seek in-depth answers to some of higher education’s more pressing inquiries.
