Ellen Hazelkorn discusses the ‘civic university’

Professor Ellen Hazelkorn from Dublin Institute of Technology joins the New Books Network to discuss her recently published book, The Civic University: The Policy and Leadership Challenges.

The book explores the new challenges that universities face in this era defined by globalisation and internationalisation but also by the consequences of funding shortages and slashed budgets.

Professor Hazelkorn and her co-authors look at ways institutions can better embed themselves into their surrounding cities or environments to have greater meaning and connection, instead of becoming separate ‘ivory tower’ islands.

While the focus is on the management of solutions to these issues and challenges, the target audience for this book is anyone interested in education, civics, or policy.
