I should like to begin by expressing to SSISI the honour conferred on me
in asking me to contribute some personal throughts on 'The idea of a
University in the 1990s' and especially because this seminar comemorates
the 100th anniversary of Cardinal Newman's death. I wish to emphasise this point in order that the
listener will not be left with the impression that these views encompass
may total view of the university.
The topics which I will refer to are:
• The university in and of the community
• Essential characteristics
• The relationship between academic and managerial autonomy
• Research and the research community
• The workforce - a major focus for the university in the 1990fs
• Demand for higher education - some speculations.
