APRU Provosts' Forum 2018

APRU Provosts’ Forum 2018 –The Future of the University

The 4th APRU Provosts’ Forum will be hosted by The University of Hong Kong on March 11 to 13, 2018. This biennial Forum will commence with a welcome dinner in the evening of March 11 and conclude in the late afternoon of March 13.

Themed “The Future of the University”, this Forum will address immediate and future challenges that face research universities, particularly with respect to changing (Gen Z) student profiles; rapid, and often seismic developments in technology, and also the continuing demands placed on universities to better prepare graduates for employability. APRU Provosts will have the opportunity to share insights and best practices in their own institutional, cultural and regional contexts.

An Organizing Committee, comprising APRU Provosts from various regions, has been convened and will be meeting shortly to develop the program, ensuring active and meaningful participant engagement.

HKU is also exploring the possibility of organizing an optional spin-off event on March 14, 2018, featuring keynotes, networking opportunities and possible site visits. The intention would be to open this up to a broader audience, specifically the higher education sector in Hong Kong and regionally. Details will be announced shortly.
