Abstract

In Morocco, high unemployment rates among university graduates, the expansion of private vocational schools, and weak political support for public universities have all affected the university’s role in shaping the wider collective good. Shana Cohen outlines how the current policy situation is limiting the nature of academic impact in Morocco. The more complex, but perhaps more important, issue for institutional reform is how to intersect research, the study of critical issues like job creation, and pedagogy so that the university acts to restore a sense of collective belonging.
