Academic’s profession changed. We propose here a testimony, based mainly on two aspects for which the author strongly got involved : the professionalization of the programs of teaching in his university, and his commitment in the debate on the regional development. Indeed, the geographers and other academics, specialized in town and regional planning, cannot limit their activity to teaching and research. They have to be involved in their territory. It is a question of credibility, for them and for the institution which they represent : the university.
