The aim of this article is to reflect upon the ideas of universities especially in respond to its relation with the societies. It explores the metaphor that has driven the functions and the ways that universities have been operating. It questions such structure and proposes that universities, within the framework of their ‘third mission’, are in dire need of a ‘new’ metaphor that is build upon universities’ own unique structure and not by internalizing the outside forces especially from industries. In advocating these ideas, the article illustrates through the experiences of Universiti Sains Malaysia in becoming the top research university in Malaysia, yet remains as University in a Garden and recognised as a Regional Centre of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development.
