THE PRODUCTIVE UNIVERSITY AND HUMAN CAPITAL (THE POST ERA OF KNOWLEDGE PRODUCTION)
The developments that characterized the global knowledge economic arena resulted in an increase of interest in human capital, and competition shifted towards the accumulation of competent minds who are able to adapt the accumulated knowledge to serve both society and the state and use it to enhance their presence in the competition towards hegemony. Accordingly, the importance of universities in training and rehabilitation increased, after their importance in scientific research, because of their pivotal role in the system of knowledge production and linking them to the growing needs of development, and; thus, in supplying economic and social sectors with a qualified individual to run the reins of life in its local and global dimensions. It has become necessary, in light of the expansion of the use of modern technologies and their control over people's lives and their dominance over the forms of their practice of them, for the university to turn into an institution that serves what is expected of developments in people's social system and in their ways of living, and to provide sample, practical, and direct services to society in various fields of life, in an effort to solve its problems and driving its progress by providing it with human energies capable of leading it. In accordance with the idea of a university that produces human capital, which carries the philosophy of a positive impact on the movement of society, and the realization of full achievements of scientific and technical development so as to be more involved in meeting people's needs for development, change, progress, and the practice of life effectively and competently. Since human groups tend to make use of the most of technical and technological knowledge that dominates the form and mechanisms of practicing life, both in present and future times, to manage their interests with a click button on a tablet, or a lock button on a computer, Third Millennium University is required to adapt quickly to serve this, and to qualify capable human framework to put it all into practise. Within this framework, the present paper attempts to answer the following questions: How does the university transform from a knowledge-producing university into a field to adapt it to serve people and society? How does the university contribute to providing society with the human competencies that employ knowledge accumulation to produce it, and; thus, making the accumulation of efficient human capital its first message? In light of the university's practice of its formative role, which is planned for it in the immediate and future terms?
