International Conference on World-Class Universities (WCU)

This biennial event has been organized by the Center for World-Class Universities (CWCU) at Shanghai Jiao Tong University since 2005.

World-Class Universities (WCU), commonly known as global research universities or flagship universities, are of great significance to nations’ potentials of development in a knowledge-driven global economy and in seeking conceptual and practical solutions to daunting challenges. The development of WCUs is high on the policy agenda of various stakeholders across the globe in the past decades. The conference provides a platform for leading scholars, senior university administrators, and policy makers worldwide to discuss various issues related to WCU. After each conference, presentations are selected and published as a book to crystalize critical research questions and productive conversations, which inspires further discussions and examinations on these topics for the global community.
