Universities and Society

Higher education institutions and the system of which they are a part face a number of previously unimaginable problems
from social factors that have an impact on and are impacted by these institutions and their communities of students and educators.
Sweeping demographic changes, declining provincial budgets, revolutionary information and communications technology advancements,
globalisation, competition from new educational providers, market pressures to shape educational and scholarly practises
toward profit-driven ends, and rising demands and pressures for fundamental changes in public policy and public accountability
regarding the role of higher education in addressing urgent issues are some of these forces.
