Chinese perspectives on building world-class universities: Government policies, institutional responses, and challenges

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

China's quest for world-class universities has recently emerged as a significant phenomenon in the studies of comparative higher education. With a cultural approach and based on empirical findings, this paper aims at a comprehensive investigation of the emerging Chinese model of the university with its key features and its contributions to global communities. It first examines the discourses of world-class universities in dissimilar societal contexts, explores both top-down and bottom-up approaches employed in China's agendas for global status, then presents three case study universities in their move to mass higher education with their institutional determinations and initiatives for building world-class status. The next section reflects on the core values of the emerging Chinese model of the university, i.e., self-mastery and intellectual freedom, together with other key features, and identifies its missions and institutional pathways in which it differs from the dominant Anglo-American model, while sharing some common features with the continental European and Japanese models of the university. The last section turns to policy implications of the emerging Chinese model, the lessons it may have for leadership and practice, and its role in fostering vibrant democracies and global dialogue among civilizations in the future.
