The 24-chapter book provides an overview of SUSS’s educational approach, reinforcing the roles it seeks to play in the evolving tertiary education landscape in Singapore by incorporating different approaches and activities into the heart of learning at the University. This book is written by SUSS faculty who share their rich and diverse perspectives on today’s socio-economic issues and challenges, the impact of university education now and beyond, and how higher education should be broadened to support learning as a lifelong habit.
