> On behalf of the Forum Organising Committee, we would like to inform you of the:
>
> THIRD WORLD UNIVERSITIES FORUM
> Davos, Switzerland     
> 9-11 January 2010     
> http://UniversitiesForum.com    
>
> Inspired partly by the success of World Economic Forum in hosting global conversations about emerging issues of economic policy, the World Universities Forum (WUF) was created in 2008 in the belief that academe must better engage today's most crucial questions, and that higher education itself must be included as part of the wider discussion of global change.  The Forum encourages the participation of university executives, administrators, scholars and research students, as well as journalists, policy makers, business and political leaders, and others who understand that the importance of the university extends well beyond campus. While WUF encourages conversations about all aspects of higher education policy and practice, the keynotes for the third WUF have been invited to consider issues of the current global economic crisis and its implications for universities.
