From Ivory Tower to Academic Commitment and Leadership

The Changing Public Mission of Universities

Amalya Oliver-Lumerman and Gili S. Drori

How is the public mission of universities to change in the face of today’s global challenges? How is the 21st Century university to balance its long-standing traditions and its commitment to teaching, research and commercialization with rapidly changing social needs and conditions worldwide? And how does the newly defined public role of the university reflect on changes to non-profit organizations in general? Amalya Oliver-Lumerman and Gili S. Drori offer a new model of academic commitment and leadership in response to questions about the new public role of the university.

Chapter 3: The shaping of contemporary models for the universitys public role: from CSR to ACL

Amalya Oliver-Lumerman and Gili S. Drori

Abstract

In their search for appropriate strategies for engagement with society and for impacting the public good, universities wrestle with the translation of the flourishing model corporate social responsibility (CSR) to academia. In this chapter, we compare and contrast CSR with ACL to better articulate our proposal for ACL as a guide for the 21st century university.
