Welcome to the March 2020 edition of The Institutional Researcher.
In our Institutional Researcher’s Corner this issue, I interviewed Dr Rintaro Ohno who works at Tohoku University in Japan. I first met Rintaro at our annual forum in Sydney four years ago. He has been an active AAIR member for about four years, delivering presentations and contributing discussions at AAIR annual forums. Unlike some increasingly specialised IR positions, Rintaro’s work within Tohoku University’s Strategic Planning Office (aka their President’s Office) is diversified and dynamic! Find out more by reading Rintaro’s interview.
One of the books I have included in this month’s Good Reads section is Higher Education and Hope: Institutional, Pedagogical and Personal Possibilities. Indeed, the nature and role of universities is an important and pressing question. From both Western and non-Western perspectives, this book constructs ‘a more humane and compassionate framing of the work of and in universities’ for the public good. That is the hopeful and inspirational role of higher education!
