Konsep Universiti dan Aplikasinya di Malaysia
Nordin Kardi

Abstrak

Kertas ini melakarkan sebuah konsep yang eksploratif bagi menganalisa ide asal sebuah universiti dan aplikasinya kepada universiti-universiti lain dalam dunia moden terutamanya dalam ASEAN dan Malaysia. Tradisi dan amalan universiti medieval boleh dilihat dan dirasai dalam organisasi dan operasi universiti-universiti moden seluruh dunia.

Universiti-universiti Eropah telah memulakan inisiatif perubahan bagi memastikan perubahan-perubahan ini dapat mempertahankan kewujudan persekitaran pengajian tinggi yang kompetitif dengan membentuk penubuhan beberapa kesepakatan seperti Bologna Process dan Lisbon Convention dengan ASEAN dapat mengakurkan sesuatu persetujuan. Malaysia dan Kerajaan ASEAN masih belum memeteraikan apa-apa persetujuan yang lebih serius dalam mempersatukan sistem universiti.

Penulis meragui jika universiti ASEAN yang bergerak bersendirian dapat memposisikan kedudukan melangkaui pesaing-pesaing dari bahagian lain dalam dunia.

Abstract

This is an exploratory conceptual paper attempting at analyzing the origin of the idea of auniversity and its application to universities in the modern world especially ASEAN and Malaysia. The medieval university tradition and practices can still be seen and felt in the organization and operation of modern universities world over.

While European Universities have initiated the necessary changes to ensure their survival in a new highly competive higher education environment by binding themselves together through various agreements such as Bologna Process and Lisbon Convention their counterparts in ASEAN are yet to institute any such arrangement. Malaysia and other ASEAN Government are yet to seal any serious agreement towards unifying their university system.

The writer is doubtful that by going individually universities in ASEAN can position themselves ahead of their competitors from other parts of the world.
