Summary
"Contemporary universities are very much an integral part of communities. However, while much has been written about teaching and research in universities, the 'service' role of the academic has been neglected. In an attempt to address this imbalance, The Academic Citizen looks at how these three roles interrelate and explores the idea of a compact between universities and society. This book argues that in order to achieve a compact, we need to re-evaluate the poorly rewarded aspects of service and leading academics need to set a new standard."--BOOK JACKET
