Reihe: Transatlantic Public Policy Series

The contributions of this volume are based on the colloquium "Adapting universities to the global society - a transatlantic perspective", held by the Transatlantic Policy Consortium on the Bloomington Campus of Indiana University in September 2007.
The 12 provocative papers

  • investigate the impacts of globalization and global competition on the performance, mission, role and shape of American and European universities,

  • identify the differences between American and European universities regarding societal support, research, management and leadership,

  • examine ways of closing the gaps and meeting university quality challenges, and

  • assess the values of the Bologna Process and the changing nature of university governance.
The volume provides a unique insight into these problems from a European and US perspective.

Dr. Charles F. Bonser is Dean Emeritus of the School of Public and Environmental Affairs, Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana, USA.
