Definition[edit]

I have replaced the following two definitions with the third one. The first two definitions were separated in the article by a semicolon.

Definition Note
The institution of higher education. One single institution? Really? Given the definite article, which one of the many?
Universities and other higher-education establishments collectively. Roughly matches the definition from Wikipedia.
The scientific and cultural community engaged in higher education and research, taken as a whole. Wikipedia definition, as of today.
