    Abstract

    This chapter examines the changing discourses regarding the fundamental mission of universities and the diverse and competing social, economic, political and technical forces of the 21st century that they now face. Of particular interest is the identification of the ways academia itself is being forced to refocus its practices to respond to the 21st century milieu.
