The concluding chapter draws together the themes of the book, establishing that the University continues to offer students the opportunity to realise their academic potential and is characterised by academic commitment to this project. Yet, the elevation of the student and the disappearance of the academic is linked to the emergence of uneasy academic identities for both. The chapter summarises the wider factors that shape expectations and experiences within the academy and contextualises and explains the current mental health ‘crisis’ and the impact that this has on academic workload and responsibility. The chapter highlights the impact of the rise of accountability, governance and surveillance and shows how these processes, driven by the imperative to standardise, stymie creativity and reconfigure the generational transaction at the heart of the University, with implications for the academic– student relationship.

Keywords:   Generations, mental health, academic-student relationship, schoolification, identity, governance, knowledge
