SRM University-AP, Amaravati, participated in a four-day working conference titled “Architecting the future global university”. The conference was organised by the New York based Rockefeller Foundation and tackled a two-fold concern for educational institutions worldwide – quality education remains inaccessible to millions of students and the branded residential institution model does not scale to global demand.
Vice chancellor Jamshed Bharucha joined a select gathering of 20 intellectuals invited to produce a model action plan for the future university as a global force.
The mandate of the conference was to bring together innovative and entrepreneurial minds to devise a suitable approach to strategic planning. Recognising that global challenges cannot be solved by any one discipline methodology, or accepted set of scholarly practices, the participants examined ways to architect a truly inclusive university.
