The 6th International Barcelona Conference on Higher Education


As you may know, GUNi is organizing the 6th International Barcelona Conference on Higher Education, “Let’s Build Transformative Knowledge to Drive Social Change”, May 13-15, 2013.

This edition is focused on Knowledge, Engagement & Higher Education. The Conference will provide visibility and will critically examine one of the most significant trends: the growth of the theory and practice of engagement as a key feature in the evolution of higher education.

Since your institution is very active in this field, GUNi will be really pleased to count on your participation in the Conference. We are preparing a very dynamic and participatory event, and the discussions and outcomes will be integrated in the next GUNi Report that will deal with the same issue.

I take this opportunity to kindly ask for your support by announcing the Conference in your various media (newsletter, website, regular communication) to your partners and collaborators.
