    A university is a learning organization in both the traditional academic and contemporary management senses. The social foundation for learning is clearly established, and there are many contexts that support learning formally and informally. This panel will explore the social contexts, or communities, that are in place or have the potential to enrich the academic environment. Panelists bring unique perspectives on higher education, engineering education and research, and communities.
