Resilient Universities: Confronting Changes in a Challenging World

ROSALIND M. O. PRITCHARD (Editor), JAN ERIK KARLSEN (Editor)

    Research output: Book/ReportAnthology

    Abstract

    Resilience is ostensibly acknowledged as a cross-disciplinary issue, yet resilience has seldom been applied to the understanding of universities and the academic world. The contributions to this volume aim to fill this gap through the presentation of both theoretical and empirical studies. The book's title reflects the desire to extend the debate in new directions and to assemble a fresh set of models and tools for thinking about resilient universities. Bringing together a range of experts in the field, this collection marks a novel departure towards establishing a holistic approach to future university governance and adaptation.
