Prof. Tuan was invited by UoM to speak in the Global University Engagement Summit on ‘Future Civic Universities’ on 10 September 2019. The Summit attracted 65 leaders from 14 countries to examine their shared challenge in undertaking meaningful and effective engagement with the surrounding communities, cities, regions and nations at a time when there is increasing public scepticism towards universities and the ‘experts’ who inhabit them.
