The Changing University: The End of Liberalism?

Organised jointly by Gresham College and New York University in London

Worldwide, universities are changing as they have become part of the global knowledge economy. Some of the key changes are: massification of systems and institutions; the emergence of ‘the virtual university’; ‘marketisation’ of HE; diversity among institutions; the establishment of quality regimes that possibly threaten the integrity of that which they would evaluate. Can we any longer associate ‘university’ with a definite set of values or is it now up to each university to define its own values? Is any attempt to associate universities with values a bygone idea? Should we abandon the idea that universities might be associated with an overarching set of values and even liberal sentiments? Drawing especially on developments in the USA and the UK, we will examine possibilities for the recovery and development of liberal ideas of the university in the 21st century.
