In the fourth Tertiary Education Policy event by KPMG and the Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education we'll debate the ways to achieve a less sceptical country.
Join Glyn Davis, Vice Chancellor, University of Melbourne as he discusses the role of higher education organisations in the face of declining public trust.
We can trace a decline in trust in many authoritative institutions, from democracy itself to universities and college education. How bad is this problem, and are there positive signs amid the gloom? How can and should universities particularly, and those who care about knowledge as the defining commodity of democracy and civic culture more generally, respond to this evident loss of confidence in knowledge and in institutions of higher learning? What would a helpful strategy for the future look like?
