Leadership for world-class universities: challenges for developing countries

This publication reveals how “world-class” thinking and policy can help university leaders employ modern solutions to the challenges facing higher education today. The essays are grounded in empirical research and written to engage the reader, stimulate reflection and enhance performance. This book focuses especially on developing and middle-income countries, which face special problems where higher education is expanding most rapidly. Key themes of the publication include strategic planning, governance of academic institutions, the role of the academic profession fundraising, student access and equity, and the impact of globalisation. The chapter by D. B. Johnstone focuses on the funding of universities in the twenty-first century.
