GUNi develops the following main activities:
- - Higher Education in the World Report
The Report is a collective work published as part of the GUNi series on the social commitment of universities. It is the result of a global and regional analysis of higher education in the world, with a specific subject chosen for each edition. The Report reflects on the key issues and challenges facing higher education and its institutions in the 21st century. It is currently published in English, Spanish, Chinese, Portuguese and Arabic.
The GUNi Conference is an international forum for debate on the challenges facing higher education. Each edition of the Conference deals with the subject chosen for the Report. Held in Barcelona and attended by renowned experts, university leaders, academics, policymakers and practitioners from all over the world, the Conference addresses innovative proposals and ideas, as well as the results of the latest research on each subject.
- - GUNi Knowledge Community
GUNi.KC is a virtual meeting point and resource center with the objective of supporting the creation, transfer and application of knowledge. It aims to provide a space for discussion and exchange that will reinforce the reports and the ongoing work presented at our conferences. Through a variety of specific topics focused in the transformation of higher education and its role in responding to global challenges, GUNi.KC offers tools to stimulate the direct participation of the affiliates in order to facilitate the exchange of expertise, resources and good practices that returned as a knowledge gain to community members.
GUNi.KC also provides specific objectives aimed:
- to provide specialized know-how in the particular experience of each territory;
- to share the result of research and reflection on hot topics and emerging issues;
- to encourage the submission of proposals to improve synergies between the broader network and the institutional members.
- - Research projects driven from GUNi
