“The three-day conference will engage members and non-members alike in discussions focusing on the impact of universities on innovation, research and development, civil society, funding and access, employment, and the role and place of government and the corporate sector in building the skilled leaders of tomorrow,” according to an announcement published on the ACU website.

Discussion questions for the convening include:

  • What does a responsible university look like and how do institutions achieve this distinction?
  • Where most universities have a statement of responsibility, how is this practically applied to the direction and management of these institutions?
