Registrations are open for ACA's Annual Conference "Tying it all together"

Tying it all together.
Excellence, mobility, funding and the social dimension in higher education

Helsinki, 10-12 June 2012

ACA is happy to announce the opening of registration for its key event in 2012, the ACA Annual Conference. The conference, organised in collaboration with ACA's Finnish member CIMO, will take place in wonderful Helsinki. It will bring together a select group of leading thinkers to address, from a multiplicity of perspectives, the synergies between four hotly debated issues in higher education world-wide: internationalisation and mobility, excellence, funding and social inclusion.
It will attempt to take a "holistic" view, by tying all these themes together and thus exploring their relevance to one another. For example, what is the relationship between social commitment and "excellence"? Or, to put it differently, can a university both cater to disadvantaged groups in society and be world-class? Does it perhaps even boost academic performance to provide wide access and be socially inclusive? What is the link between internationalisation (and mobility) and funding? Are the best-performing institutions strong in both respects, as Jamil Salmi claims? Is a lack of funds always a disadvantage, or could it also be an incentive for radical reform?

The full programme can be found here.

Register soon. ACA events have the tendency to fill up fast...
