Universities have a responsibility to the communities and the environment they are a part of. A purpose-driven university is one that asks itself why it exists and seeks to support its faculty and students so that they can have a positive effect on society far beyond monetary measurements. Author Debbie Haski-Leventhal discusses the ways a university can find its purpose.
