Where should universities be heading?

November 2004 - Where should universities be heading?This election all sides are promising more university places for all, but are universities fulfilling our real needs?

Where do universities fit in life-long learning? Have standards fallen? As the assessment cycle reaches its climax our November feature asks what could we do better.
