The current phase of rankings began in 2003 with the launch of the Academic Rankings of World Universities. It reflected the intensification of globalization and global competition, and strengthening of an international higher education market. Global rankings were a game-changer, placing higher education within a wider comparative and international framework. As a result, they attracted the attention of policymakers and the academy around the world. The choice of indicators has defined what constitutes quality; the multi-annual publication has become a visible measure of global competitiveness and its increasing multi-polarity; the ‘Top 100’ has transformed ‘world-class’ into a strategy, a language and a topic of study. A profound transformation has occurred within higher education systems and institutions around the world. But perhaps one of the least examined aspects of rankings has been their influence in helping define and structure the academic and policy discourse about quality, performance and accountability. This chapter looks at the rise of rankings, and wider spill-over for conceptions of quality, performance and accountability. It considers the range of other tools being developed,and alternatives to rankings by governments, agencies, HE and others.

The Civic University

The Policy and Leadership Challenges

Edited by John Goddard, Ellen Hazelkorn, Louise Kempton and Paul Vallance

This innovative book addresses the leadership and management challenges of maximising the contribution of universities to civil society both locally and globally. It does this by developing a model of the civic university as an academic concept, drawing out practical lessons for university management on how to embed civic engagement in the heartland of the university. To this end, the contributors compare experiences and reports on a developmental process in eight institutions: University College London and Newcastle University in the UK, Amsterdam and Groningen Universities in the Netherlands, Aalto and Tampere Universities in Finland and Trinity College Dublin and Dublin Institute of Technology in Ireland. It will be of interest to academics of politics, public policy and management studies, as well as having relevance to policymakers in the field.
