There is an epochal need to nurture a new university as part of regenerating education in general and higher education in particular. Our universities have been at a crossroads for a long time. Contemporary universities emerged in the modern world embodying the limitations and possibilities of modern world view as well as its socio-political organization. The present article discusses some of its limitations such as disciplinarity and a false sense of universality. It discusses how we can nurture transdisciplinary and multiversal places of learning as part of our creative experiments with present and future.

Keywords: Futures, Crossroads, Education, Learning, Humboldt, Research, Politics, Commodification, India, University, Knowledge, Challenges, Co-learning, Teaching, Disciplinary, Corporatization.
