EPOL 522 A - Globalization of Higher Ed
Focuses on the rapid changes happening in the Higher Education around the world. Using case studies, we will examine a variety of issues that have come about as the Higher Education system responds to rapid changes in the global economy. These include issues of access and equity; accountability; finance; privatization and for-profit institutions; curricular responses to the changing realities of knowledge and knowledge production; and issues of internationalization within these changing contexts. We will also look at future trends in higher education within the US and internationally. Course Information: Same as EPS 538. 4 graduate hours. No professional credit.
