Abstract:

The networked information economy and society present a new social, technical, and economic environment within which the university functions. To understand the new challenges and opportunities this environment presents, we need a usable characterization of the core new characteristics of both the environment and the university as a system and how those characteristics interact to define today’s challenges.
