center publications

A key activity of the Center is an ongoing publication series. Its purpose is to provide to the higher education community international access to key thinking on current issues in higher education. Each publication focuses on a specific theme, such as budget and finance of higher education, academic freedom and academic responsibility, or the academic profession, and brings together the best available data, analysis, and opinion on the topic through a careful selection of articles, reports, and book chapters. Selected titles are available for download in the PDF format.
