In a turbulent, unstable era of severe financial pressures, thedevelopment of strategic human resource (HR) practices has becomean urgent mandate in higher education. With significant andwidespread institutional shifts resulting from globalization,heightened competition, and rapid innovation, educational leadersmust optimize their most significant resource—humancapital—and align HR strategies, structures, and processeswith organizational goals. Due to substantial cuts in stateappropriations and rapidly diminishing budgets, public institutionsof higher education in particular are struggling to realignresources and programs to fulfill their educational missions andmaintain academic quality, while simultaneously responding tocomplex external legislative and accreditation mandates. In light of these challenges, Creating a Tipping Point:Strategic Human Resources in Higher Education breaks new groundby presenting a research-based approach that supports the evolutionof HR practices from siloed, transactional models to strategicoperations that serve the entire university. This monographprovides a concrete, progressive road map to developingorganizational capabilities in support of the university's academicmission and illustrates this pathway with examples drawn frompublic research universities. It offers strategies, tools, metrics,and action steps that support the development of an effective andefficient strategic HR operation in higher education. Forinstitutions seeking to implement strategic HR, this book is apractical and invaluable resource.

This volume seeks to identify and explore the forces affecting higher education in the Asia Pacific region today. It includes a set of conceptually-rich organizing chapters followed by detailed country-specific studies that detail both the underlying dynamics of these forces and the manner in which they have affected specific countries. In this way, the chapters touch on the complex demographics of the region, how continued and continuous economic development impinges on higher education, and how neoliberalism has affected higher education across many dimensions. The volume also addresses the complex issues associated with cross border education and the daunting challenges of both national and cross-national quality assurance.

Higher education policy has increasingly gained a European dimension, with its own distinct influence over national education policies. Against this background, a major project was launched, the REFLEX project, which aims to make a contribution to assessing the demands that the modern knowledge society places on higher education graduates, and the degree to which higher education institutions in Europe are up to the task of equipping graduates with the competencies needed to meet these demands. The project also looks at how the demands, and graduates’ ability to realise them, is influenced by the way in which work is organised in firms and organisations. The REFLEX project has been carried out in sixteen different countries and consisted of a large scale survey among some 70.000 graduates. This report presents the major findings and draws important policy implications.

A major transformation of Chinese higher education (HE) has taken place over the past decade – China has reshaped its higher education sector from elite to mass education with the number of graduates having quadrupled to three million a year over six years. China is exceptional among lower income countries in using tertiary education as a development strategy on such a scale, aiming to improve the quality of its graduates, and make HE available to as many of its citizens as possible. This book provides a critical examination the challenges to the development and sustainability of higher education in China: Can its universities move from quantity to quality? How will so many graduates find jobs in line with their expectations? Can Britain and other western countries continue to benefit from China’s education boom? What are the prospects for collaboration in research? This book evaluates the prospects for Chinese and foreign HE providers, regulators and other stakeholders. It introduces the key changes in China’s HE programme since the Opening-Up policy in 1978 and analyses the achievements and the challenges over the subsequent three decades. Furthermore, it sheds light on new reforms that are likely to take place in the future, particularly as a result of the ongoing international financial crisis.

The European Union (EU) is attempting to integrate the science and engineering (S&E) research community and make the region's high concentration of science resources even more productive by encouraging greater cooperation and collaboration across borders. Data in this report describes growth in academic degrees, R&D, and gross domestic product (GDP). A high concentration of the world's scientific resources continue to reside in the European region. The current levels and projected growth of financial and human resources devoted to S&T in Europe pose some emerging issues that will be important in S&T policy discussions in the U.S. Charts and tables.

Finland, South Korea and the state of North Carolina in the United States are three systems that successfully have harnessed higher education in their economic development initiatives. Common to the success of all these systems is, amongst others, the link between economic and education planning, quality public schooling, high tertiary participation rates with institutional differentiation, labour market demand, cooperation and networks, and consensus about the importance of higher education for development. Linking higher education and economic development: Implications for Africa from three successful systems draws together evidence on the three systems, synthesises the key findings, and distils the implications for African countries. The project on which the book is based forms part of a larger study on Universities and Economic Development in Africa, undertaken by the Higher Education Research and Advocacy Network in Africa (HERANA). HERANA is co-ordinated by the Centre for Higher Education Transformation in South Africa.
