The contributions of this volume are based on the colloquium „Adapting
universities to the global society – a transatlantic perspective“, held by
the Transatlantic Policy Consortium on the Bloomington Campus of Indiana
University in September 2007.
The 12 provocative papers

  • investigate the impacts of globalization and global competition on
    the performance, mission, role and shape of American and European

  • identify the differences between American and European
    universities regarding societal support, research, management and

  • examine ways of closing the gaps and meeting university quality
    challenges, and

  • assess the values of the Bologna Process and the changing nature
    of university governance.

The volume provides a unique insight into these problems from a European
and US perspective.

Dr. Charles F. Bonser is Dean Emeritus of the School of Public and
