Summary From Austria to India, university administrators and public policy makers are grappling with the high costs of higher education. Comparing the models by which higher education is funded in the United States and seven other countries, developed and developing, the chapters of this textbook help identify effective financial strategies to meet fast-evolving demands. How can each nation and each institution achieve the right balance between quality and quantity, access and equity, need-based and merit-based aid, government funding and private endowments? In these nine chapters, case studies discuss the different approaches being taken and the varying results produced. This handbook on the finance of higher education is essential reading for college administrators, policy-makers and graduate programs in higher education administration.
