The Spectrum of our Current Concerns


Brief insights and perspective  Articles

 There are many things that are (or should be) of general concern to us all.  This 'box' seeks both  to give some idea of the scope of our contemporary vision as well as giving some background insight as to what is involved.

The particular social sphere from which we come to these concerns is that of tertiary education and scholarship.   However,  we do not believe that the University should be ‘an Ivory Tower.’  Accordingly we see our broader responsibility  as one  seeking to assist the making of responsible decisions. We do this at three levels:


(i) Sort provocative articles to set the stage for considering the issues.  (ii) Longer articles that are illustrative of what is involved.  (iii) More in depth contributions of a scholarly character.



Purposefully opening the issues
