The Congress of Academic Culture

Piotr Sztompka


The Jagiellonian University at Krakow celebrating its 650-th anniversary will host in March 2014 the Congress of Academic Culture. It is the response to the growing doubts about the ascendance of  "postacademic science" and "educational industry", away from the traditional idea of the university. The erosion of academic ethos, values and standards, as well as the neglect of the research mission of the university must be stopped, without losing the opportunites provided by the explosive development of university education in the XXI century. The Congress will open the floor for the debate of three generations: established "masters", rising "stars" and promising graduate students.
