The challenges to public higher education became noticeable since the 1980s, just as globalization, which empowered many countries around the world to become more open to foreign trade and investment, gained momentum. The openness to international commerce and capital mobility, which led to the quick diffusion of modern technologies and global demonstration effects, came with many challenges. Now, the challenges to public higher education are multifaceted and amplified in this era of rising tuitions and administrative costs of public higher education; therefore, research scholars need to carefully and thoroughly examine these challenges as we move forward in this era of globalization because the development and diffusion of modern technologies arise from the acquisition of human capital provided by higher education.

Join faculty, students, staff, and administrators as we dissect these issues, looking at how they affect public higher education and how higher education needs to respond.
