The role of an academic in society has been a question constantly facing academics in their research, teaching positions and placement at universities. Often the university is seen as disconnected from the greater public; it’s a separate space distinct from its surrounding communities and society. While research is often pertinent to growing developments in technology and thought, there is still a prevailing notion that academics are distant from society in a large part of their work. From a student’s perspective, this holds different weight, especially in a society increasingly more insistent on the pressure placed on personal responsibility for all aspects of life, especially economic.
