The Higher Education Tomorrow (© 2014 - 2017) academic blog is devoted to the systematic research-based analysis of important issues affecting global higher education and its future. Higher education institutions and national systems of higher education no longer operate as stand-alone entities but rather as part of a complex, interconnected global system of higher education that is undergoing rapid change at all levels. Within this contemporary reality and context, this blog showcases original research and ideas at the theory, policy, and practice levels that addresse the most important issues in global higher education. This blog aims to disseminate knowledge about the emerging directions in global higher education and the political, social, and economic impacts of that development on institutions and on the higher education profession at large. As reflected in the blog's name, this blog takes a forward-thinking global view and offers recommendations on how global higher education can be transformed to work for all people by improving policy decision-making and by strengthening democratic societies and protecting human rights.
