Designing a university for the new millennium


Dr. David Helfand is served as a Founding Tutor, and since 2008, as the President and Vice Chancellor of Quest University Canada. During his time at the Columbia University in New York, he cultivated a deep understanding of the problems of traditional universities and thereby seized an opportunity to redesign higher education.

Dr. Helfand created a university for the 21st century from scratch. The redesign was based on the following 4 key factors with no reference to the knowledge he had about present universities:

  1. Setting of goals
  2. Designing an institutional structure
  3. Creating a curriculum
  4. Uncovering a way to deliver that curriculum to meet your goals

Participate in the upcoming QS WorldClass 2018 from 16-18 April 2018.

This is an event organised exclusively for senior higher education leaders and key industry partners. Interested in making a change to the higher education world? Come join us in Abu Dhabi as we discuss on the “Changes in University/Industry Interaction”.
