Somantri, Gumilar R.  
Gumilar R. Somantri: Coillected Speeches Volume 3
 Picture
Publisher: Universitas Indonesia, 2011 Depok, Indonesia.
Book. Book condition: Near Fine. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall Edited by Allan F. Lauder. "In my privileged position as Rector of Universitas Indonesia, one of my duties is to speak at the openings of a wide variety of events such as conferences, symposia, meetings with industry and graduations. At each one, my task is to share ideas which are both relevant to the event, and of interest to them. I also attempt to demonstrate how dynamic the university is in its progress of becoming world class. Above all, I would hope to leave the audience with a good impression of UI by not making the mistake of being too long or too predictable. Each speech is written to be relevant for the individual audience, but a number of themes and elements in the speeches appear again and again. Such core themes include, for example, university governance, leadership, ethics in education, the importance of collaboration in education and research. I realized that if the speeches were collected and published, it would make them available to a wider audience and that, when the different speeches were put side by side, it would reflect the breadth and dynamism of the intellectual life of this university. I can also hope that the collected speeches will be of interest to the majority of intellectuals, academics and leaders because of the wide range of important issues that are covered.." xxxi + 135 pages. Book is in NEAR FINE condition. No dust jacket.
