Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

In May 1998, twenty representatives from the higher education communities of the United States and Western Europe met in Glion, Switzerland to discuss the challenges facing higher education today and to propose effective means for meeting those challenges. "Challenges Facing Higher Education at the Millennium" presents the collection of papers written by members of the colloquium. Key issues discussed include: the role of the university in society; the university and new technologies; new sources of revenue; possible alliances between education, private industry and government; co-operation between disciplines; lifelong learning. The volume concludes with The Glion Declaration, issued by the colloquium and outlining the main conclusions from the meeting.
