As the chapters in this book have identified, the academy and academics have experienced significant radical transformations across the past three decades. In many ways, academics have been eyewitnesses to these changes, and while there is much to mourn about what has been ‘lost’, this is not the time for academic ambivalence towards the effects of these reforms that have significantly altered the landscape of higher education. In this final chapter, I draw together the constellation of ideas presented across this book to propose five institutional typologies of universities in the 21st century. This chapter and book concludes by calling for a re-emergence of the public university and a reaffirmation of the role of public intellectuals.
