About Us

As a major research center in Boston College, the Center for International Higher Education promotes the belief that an international perspective is needed to foster enlightened policies and practices in higher education.

With this mission, CIHE was founded in 1995 to advance knowledge about the complex realities of higher education in the contemporary world through its flagship publication International Higher Educationresearch, publications, training programs, and advisory activities.

These activities are driven by its mission, but also by a vision that the Center can only accomplish its mission through active collaboration and partnership with similar research centers and scholars around the globe, in particular in emerging and developing countries.
