The IIEP Letter: The changing role of higher education

12 July 2017

 

Higher education is rapidly expanding, diversifying, and attracting more students than ever before. At the same time, only 1 per cent of the poorest are spending more than four years in higher education, compared to 20 per cent of the richest, according to a recent analysis by IIEP and UNESCO's Global Education Monitoring Report. This edition of The IIEP Letter explores what is needed to enable higher education to fully play its central new role in the Sustainable Development agenda.
