Mapping the burgeoning field of higher education on both a national and international level, this book examines essential programs, training centers, and publications.

Higher education is often considered a local affair. Yet in reality it is a grand, worldwide enterprise. Here is the first effort to describe higher education on a global scale, mapping the rapidly growing field of higher education on both a national and international level by examining programs, training centers, and publications. Examined are the programs and centers focused on training for administrative and other professional university positions, as well as research centers studying higher education. A substantive essay assesses the state of higher education research worldwide.

One hundred eighty-seven centers in thirty-three countries are inventoried with information concerning the foci, programs, staff, and resources listed for each. A comprehensive listing of higher education journals is included. This book is unquestionably the most comprehensive resource available concerning research and training in the field of higher education, making it valuable to scholars and practitioners alike.
