Dr. Phil Altbach Lynch School of Education

My research interests focus on international higher education issues, and especially with topics that relate to developing and emerging economies. These include the academic profession, the role of research universities, student political activism, higher education reform, and others.

I have recently been involved in an international study of academic salaries in 28 countries—reported in our Paying the Professoriate: A Global Comparison of Compensation and Contracts. I am also concerned with global higher education trends, and particularly the implications of mass higher education globally.
