Public good, responsibility, Higher education, public scholarship
Tonight I want to make the case for bold, imaginative, reciprocal, and sustained engagements between colleges and universities and their many constituent communities, local as well as global. If we intend to pursue the vision of the university as a public good, with broad benefits for our knowledge society---especially for the understanding and practice of democracy and the values of diversity, social justice and peace---we must initiate and support these new kinds of engagements. And we must extend the practice of them from their historical roots in the great public land-grant universities and community colleges of our nation to the private colleges and universities in which innovations of significance and citizens of the future are also nurtured today.
