The seventh set of articles from The Future of Universities Thoughtbook | Universities During Times of Crisis introduces Founding President of Nazarbayev University, Shigeo Katsu, President of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Ignacio Sánchez, and Director University Collaborations at Schlumberger, Marina Bulova.
In his article ‘Quo Vadis, Universities?’, Shigeo Katsu reflects on the already visible effects of COVID-19 on universities and imagines the evolution of different types of universities and their missions, as they continue to nurture and develop citizens into the future.
In his article ‘IMAGINE a More Humane Society’, Ignacio Sánchez imagines what the future may look like post-COVID, debating a more supportive and austere society, and the need for fields such as science, economy, urban design, medicine and others to consider the needs of people for a better quality of life.
In her article ‘Borderless Individuum – Centered Education’, Marina Bulova imagines an education system that is not segregated based on the student’s location, income level or societal status. She focuses on universities as ‘skills farms’ that should not only develop the relevant workforce, but mainly target their activities on the learners and society at large.
The Future of Universities Thoughtbook | Universities During Times of Crisis is a compilation of 45 perspectives of international thought and practice leaders.
