Worldwide Higher Education Inventory

Over the course of 2013/2014, CIHE undertook an effort to generate a 3rd edition of its unique global "inventory"of higher Education research centers, degree-granting academic programs focused on higher education, and academic journals (and a small number of other relevant publications) publishing on higher education.

The work resulted in a catalog of the global landscape of higher education research, training, and publication, which was crafted into two books, one complete and one abridged. The books also include two analytical essays—one focused on key trends and issues framing the field of higher education globally, and one analyzing the specific inventory data. These items were published in 2014 in e-book form with Lemmens Media, a German publisher.

The full inventory is also available below in the form of two interactive maps. The maps provide a comprehensive overview of the main centers for research on higher education, as well as the many graduate-level academic programs being offered in the study of higher education. The inventory and the resulting maps not only provide a “snapshot” of these important activities but also serve as an unparalleled resource for facilitating communication and collaboration across the higher education research and training community.

The full PDF of the inventory is available here.

If you would like to include your higher education graduate level program or higher education research center on these maps, please e-mail us at highered@bc.edu.
