In affirming that there is a critical new imperative, this chapter summarises how it applies to the main parties. The chapter focuses on language and interests, ideology, ethics and taboos. Local regions and higher education institutions inhabit this ideological world. Higher education adopts the language and practices of business and is prey to the same geopolitical global financial crisis (GFC) forces as afflict the public, private and third sectors. A starting issue for the PASCAL Universities and Regional Engagement (PURE) project was to ask about the kinds of regions best fitted to engage with higher education, and to what effect. The uniqueness of regions, of institutions of higher education, ultimately of individuals and their diverse qualities becomes an unaffordable luxury.
