World-Class Universities

date:Mar 21,2013 source:互联网 editorial staff:linan clicks:

World-Class Universities, commonly defined as the most prestigious research universities, are essential in developing a nation’s competitiveness in the global knowledge economy. These universities play key roles in creating and disseminating knowledge, educating a highly skilled workforce for technological and intellectual leadership, and serving the needs of society. In the past decade, the development of world-class universities has been a central policy concern of various stakeholders across the globe, and an intense debate among the world academic community.

It was in this context that Center for World-Class Universities of Shanghai Jiao Tong University initiated the biennial International Conference on World-Class Universities in 2005 (WCU-1). Subsequently, the 2nd, 3rd and 4th International Conferences on World-Class Universities were convened in 2007, 2009 and 2011 respectively (WCU-2, WCU-3 and WCU-4). The conferences have gathered and attracted hundreds of university administrators, government officials and leading scholars worldwide to discuss various issues related to World-Class Universities.

Contributions to previous WCU conferences are indexed in Conference Proceedings Citation Index - Social Science and Humanities (CPCI-SSH) by Web of Science. Four volumes of WCU conferences proceedings are:

WCU-1: The World-Class University and Ranking: Aiming beyond Status
WCU-2: The World-Class University as Part of a New Higher Education Paradigm: From Institutional Qualities to
             Systemic Excellence
WCU-3: Paths to a World-Class University
WCU-4: Building World-Class Universities: Different Approaches to a Shared Goal


The 5th International Conference on World-class Universities (WCU-5) will be held between November 3 and 6, 2013 at Shanghai, China. The theme of WCU-5 is "Global Outreach of World-Class Universities: How It is Affecting Higher Education". WCU-5 will also include a special session for the 10th Anniversary of Global University Ranking. WCU-5 will again bring together researchers, university leaders and policy makers all over the world to discuss the successful experiences, ongoing practices, challenges and strategies in building and managing world-class universities
