Center For Int'l Higher Education
The Boston College Center for International Higher Education, established in 1994, provides a unique service to colleges and universities worldwide. While it has as its primary aim to provide information and publications to colleges and universities related to the Jesuit tradition, it has a broader mission to be a focal point for discussion and thoughtful analysis of higher education. The Center provides information and analysis for those involved in managing the higher education enterprise internationally through publications, conferences, and the maintenance of a database of individuals and institutions. The Center is especially concerned with creating dialogue and cooperation among academic institutions in the industrialized nations and those in the developing countries of the Third World. The Center and the Higher Education Program are closely linked and students have the opportunity to participate in Center activities. International Higher Education, a quarterly publication, is published by the Center. The Center publishes a book series related to current research activities. Currently, the Center has funding from the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations. The Center's award winning web page will also be of interest.
