Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
Enabling universities to serve society in a better way.
It's all part of making a better world.
Universities develop a clear mission based on agreed values through which they will serve society, meeting its needs for knowledge and human capital, in a way that enjoys the trust of society and attracts resources from it.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by:
- people wanting to equip themselves with knowledge and skills so that they can fulfil their passion in a way that helps people, improves the world and provides them with income;
- the generators of wealth through a good supply of well prepared human capital;
- society and
- the planet.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
More universities which are truly able to develop a clear mission based on agreed values through which they will serve society.
More people who leave university with knowledge and skills that enable them to enter employment sustainably.
More celebration of universities for achieving this.
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
National and international statistics about the 3 points in the previous response.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
