Description
More than ever, we need our universities to be engines of change and social justice.

Universities can play a major role in making this complex and changing world a better place, helping economies and societies to adapt and respond to the grand challenges we face, from tackling climate change to harnessing artificial intelligence.

This is their mission and their challenge. If universities are to remain true to their higher purpose, they must also find a higher gear.

Ed Byrne and Charles Clarke show how transforming universities can change the world.
