The 2005 Conference was the fourth in a series of Talloires conferences bringing together university leaders from around the world at the Tufts University European Center in Talloires, France. Each previous conference addressed salient issues of our time and resulted in a declaration that communicated recommendations about future university roles on the topic.

This fourth conference offered leaders the opportunity to spend three days discussing their institutions’ work to educate future generations of community leaders and to mobilize the resources of their institutions to strengthen social and community development.
