CDE Round Table 4, September 2000
CDE hosted a round table discussion on the role of business in the future of South African universities, shortly before the Council on Higher Education released its report on reconfiguring the shape and size of the higher education system.
Participants included business and professional people, university leaders, public policy makers, and other experts, including Dr. Ramesh Mashelkar FRS, Director General of the CSIR in India, and Richard Brown, chief executive of the Council for Industry and Higher Education in the United Kingdom. This was CDE’s second round table on the topic. The first round table, The future of South African universities: What role for business? Part One, which took place in 1998, broke new ground and raised critical issues now at the heart of policy debates about the higher education system.
