The Idea of The International University




Speaker: Professor Sir Drummond Bone

There are now a number of different models of the International University, from the original Universitas 21 networks and their private-sector counterparts, to NYU's vision or MIT's open access, to Nottingham's or Liverpool's different ideas of overseas ownership, to the Open University and the University of London, on-line or mixed mode - not to mention City University London's own new network. In this lecture Professor Sir Drummond Bone will look at what they try to do and at their relative advantages and limitations.

Professor Sir Drummond Bone was Vice-Chancellor of the University of Liverpool from 2002 until 2008, and President of Universities UK from 2005-7. Previously Principal of Royal Holloway, University of London, Senior Vice Principal  and Dean of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Glasgow, he was a Professor of English with a special interest in the Romantic period (he still co-edits the journal Romanticism). He was Chair of the Liverpool Capital of Culture Company in the run-up to Liverpool's year as European Capital of Culture in 2008, was Vice-Chair of the governmental initiative to regenerate the North of England 'The Northern Way', and has just relinquished the chair of its Innovation and Industry Strategy Group. He was the author of a government commissioned report of the Internationalisation of UK HE published at the end of 2008. He is currently a Senior Advisor to Laureate International Universities Network, Chair of the i-Graduate Group, and of the UK Libraries Research Reserve. He is on the editorial board of the THE.
