The role of the university within the community has to be redefined. Today’s universities should not be separated from the communities in which they exist. We need to ensure that we produce students who are thoughtful and resilient. This could be done by promoting more practical knowledge and applied educational experience in terms of critical-thinking approach, decision-making, problem-solving and creative skills. By doing so, it is hoped that they could contribute to the good of society. Thus, the publication of Quadruple Helix Smart Partnership Roundtable Meetings: Pioneering University, Industry, Government and Community Collaboration is indeed seen as a positive initiative for us to realize these aspirations.
