Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
I have replaced the following two definitions with the third one. The first two definitions were separated in the article by a semicolon.
|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.|
