Glyn Davis on institutions as ideas

Professor Glyn Davis outlines how the university will combat intense domestic and international competition for students and staff by refocusing its research activities and teaching professional courses at the postgraduate level. He explains the thinking behind this strategy, and its implications for Australian higher education.

Professor Davis is the vice-chancellor of the University of Melbourne, foundation chair of the Australia and New Zealand School of Government, and president of the Group of Eight, representing Australia's leading research universities.

This Redmond Barry Lecture was held on 17 July 2006.
