In whose hands, does the future of higher education lie?, Celestin Okoroji asks as a PhD student and answers as the following: “We cannot entrust the future of higher education to future academics, perhaps it should be students, or employers, or someone else, but whoever it is, it probably shouldn’t be us.” I think that problems in higher education largely come from unjust systems and thus, the solution should be systematic as well. Yet, I still believe that we as future academics who will teach younger generations have a great potential to light the fire by making our students more alert and assertive in challenging these long-existing problematic systems. Thus, in this blog post, I will try to show what we can do as future academics by having an activist mindset embedded in our scholarly identity.
