Marcus Aurelius was Emperor of Rome from 121 to 180. Marcus Aurelius believed that human happiness arises in part from man's acceptance of his duties and responsibilities. He believed that one should accept calmly what cannot be avoided and perform one's duties as well as possible. From the introduction " By the irony of fate this man, so gentle and good, so desirous of quiet joys and a mind free from care, was set at the head of the Roman Empire when great dangers threatened from east and west. For several years he himself commanded his armies in chief. In camp before the Quadi he dates the first book of his Meditations, and shows how he could retire within himself amid the coarse clangour of arms. The pomps and glories which he despised were all his; what to most men is an ambition or a dream, to him was a round of weary tasks which nothing but the stern sense of duty could carry him through. And he did his work well. His wars were slow and tedious, but successful. With a statesman's wisdom he foresaw the danger to Rome of the barbarian hordes from the north, and took measures to meet it. As it was, his settlement gave two centuries of respite to the Roman Empire; had he fulfilled the plan of pushing the imperial frontiers to the Elbe, which seems to have been in his mind, much more might have been accomplished. But death cut short his designs."

La reorganización geopolítica, la reestruc- turación de las fuerzas económicas, tanto como el desarrollo alcanzado por las tecnologías de la información y la comunicación, han creado un nuevo escenario en el que se observan patrones diferentes en la estructura de las sociedades y sus dinámicas demográficas, en las formas de producción y consumo de bienes y servicios, en las formas y medios de comunicación. Este escenario impone nuevas demandas y retos a los que la educación superior no puede responder de manera mecánica y funcional. Puesto que en la sociedad compiten diversos intereses, enfoques, proyectos e interpretaciones, surgen temas que requieren de discusión para definir y decidir alternativas y cursos de acción. Sociedad del conocimiento, internacionalización, planeación y conducción, evaluación de la calidad, gobernabilidad, profesión académica y "emprendedurismo", son algunos temas emergentes que requieren una crítica atención y que han estado presentes en importantes definiciones políticas, como el III Encuentro de Rectores Universia Río 2014.
