The World Universities Summit 2023 aims to expand this platform to yet again bring together University Leaders (Vice-Chancellors, Presidents and Rectors) from the G-20 countries to envisage the universities of the future across 50 thematic sessions. This year’s edition is an important one which coincides with India’s presidency of the G-20 forum. The overall focus of this year’s summit will therefore be on G-20 countries and how their higher education system is coping with local, regional and global challenges.
WORLD UNIVERSITIES SUMMIT has been conceptualized by JGU with a vision to create a platform for universities worldwide to come together to help shape the Universities of the Future. Technological advancements, pedagogical and disciplinary innovations, academic research combined with globalization and deeper societal engagement, are now changing the very way higher education institutions function. Institutional reform, in this direction, would inevitably require risk-taking, innovation and learning from the past. We need to reimagine the Universities of the Future to strengthen their vision and commitment towards institutional resilience, social responsibility and community impact.
