RAMALHO, Betania Leite  e  LLAVADOR, José Beltrán. University and society: the relevance of higher education towards a full citizenship. Rev. Lusófona de Educação [online]. 2012, n.21, pp.33-52. ISSN 1645-7250.

The present article underlines the social relevance of higher education institutions at a time of growing uncertainties and unprecedented paradigm shifts. It is necessary to redefine the meaning of the notion of relevance in order to stress the development and social emancipation issues involved in it. At the same time, the intensity and speed of contemporary changes demand a parallel redefinition of the role of universities. Universities are very relevant agents when it comes to design and anticipate alternative scenarios aiming at achieving greater equity and social cohesion.

Palavras-chave : social relevance; citizenship; development; justice; common good.
