They have seen the future and it is Greene

Leo Goedegebuure and V Lynn Meek from the L H Martin Institute set out a perhaps satirical, perhaps aspirational future for higher education in their contribution to a new essay collection on universities in 2040.  Climate change, digital comms and global competition destablise Australia, so that only “the strongest research universities survived.” But the gap is filled by a small, elite institution, where faculty, “have reconstituted the art of rhetoric and debate” and alumni “slowly but steadily are reforming the public and private sectors through their values based leadership.”  The name of this Newman-esque institution is Cleaver Greene U. The better the policy thinkers the less seriously they take themselves.
