UNESCO Chair – GACER News – January 14

| 0 comments

Friends,
 

Just jumping onto a fine talk given by our friend Andrew Petter, President of the Vancouver, Canada based Simon Fraser University.  Andrew was an important voice at Uvic for its ‘engagement’ agenda and then moved into full speed once named as President of SFU supporting a move that included branding SFU as “The Engaged University”

His opening speech at the recent World University Forum is titled “From Ivory Tower to Public Square: Democracy and the Engaged University”…worth a read!

 

Cheers,
 

Rajesh Tandon and Budd Hall
