Globalization, demographic shifts, increase in student enrollments, rapid technological transformation and market-driven environments are altering the way higher education operates today.

Institutional Research and Planning in Higher Education explores the impact of these changes on decision support and the nature of institutional research in higher education.

Karen Webber, an associate professor in UGA’s Institute for Higher Education, collaborated with her Australian co-editor, Angel Calderon, and a diverse set of contributors from around the world to explore institutional research and planning practices from a global perspective.

The book sheds light on the past, present and future of institutional research, along with implications for higher education in general.
