Higher Education and the Public Good: Creating Inclusive and Diverse National Universities in Indonesia in the Era of Globalization

Chapter
Part of the International and Development Education book series (INTDE)

Abstract

This chapter examines the tensions in the dynamics between public good purposes and provisions in the context of Indonesian national universities in the era of globalization. The focus is on how universities can represent and contribute to a diverse society while also aiming to be world-class institutions. I approach the concept ofpublic good in terms of ultimate aspirations for the future, such as the development of citizenry and leadership in support of social improvement across the nation.
