Metropolitan Universities journal seeks to showcase how urban-identified colleges and universities in Asia are defining and pursuing their social and economic responsibility. This issue reflects the Journal’s commitment to providing an international forum for diverse institutional perspectives on the growing role of community engagement in higher education. We welcome evidence-based manuscripts that examine how higher education in Taiwan and across east Asia is being shaped by dynamic social, economic, political and demographic change that increases attention to university social responsibility. This issue seeks to identify the challenges and effective strategies related to developing and participating in global partnerships, cross-sector and inter-institutional collaboration, and initiatives that are meant to stimulate university intellectual engagement through social and economic development.
