Public policy research project

Rethinking the university means defending its values, reinforcing its commitment to quality teaching, research and outreach, while at the same time reinvigorating its ties with a society in rapid transformation. These are activities that require both a return to the past, to review and correct, as well as looking to the future to innovative thinking – something that today is done with resignation. The Project therefore looks to the future based on dimensions of openness and transparency.
