Title:Financing higher education: A myriad of problems, a myriad of solutions
Source:http://www.ihep.org/assets/files/publications/a...
Date:2009
Organization:Institute for Higher Education Policy
Short Description:This issue brief uses a multicountry perspective spanning four countries—the United States, Mongolia, South Africa, and Ukraine—to highlight a number of strategies and challenges related to the creation and implementation of suitable higher education finance polices.
Annotation:The existence of high-quality, accessible, and affordable institutions is a key indicator of a nation’s progress, and developed and developing countries alike are attempting to respond to the growing demand for higher education. However, this demand comes with a price. The “massification” of higher education can place a strain on the fiscal resources of a country and has forced many countries to refocus their priorities and develop innovative funding strategies to address the demand. This issue brief uses a multicountry perspective spanning four countries—the United States, Mongolia, South Africa, and Ukraine—to highlight a number of strategies and challenges related to the creation and implementation of suitable higher education finance polices. It draws attention to the financial imperatives that affect higher education in the four countries and provides an overview of current policies, contextual influences, identified weaknesses, and proposed recommendations.
