A Critical Path: Securing the Future of Higher Education in England

Source: Institute for Public Policy Research (UK)

From Press Release:

In this report, the Commission on the Future of Higher Education sets out how Britain can continue to expand and reform higher education, protecting research and learning through austerity while ensuring that the sector is equipped to play a leading role in economic and social renewal in the future.

Over the past 50 years higher education has been transformed from an elite system to one in which nearly half of all young people and more than a million mature students participate. Our universities provide us with a significant national economic advantage as well as a vital public good. But the system faces growing future challenges, including increased international competition for students, the rise of new modes of learning and unprecedented cuts to public spending.

The report ranges across the full spectrum of issues affecting higher education, while focusing its key recommendations on how to promote a rebalanced, productive and resilient economy, how to expand access to opportunity and advance social justice, and how to respond to the new demands of students, employers and the wider community.
