The Program for Research on Private Higher Education
Dedicated to Building Knowledge about Private Higher Education around the World

What is PROPHE?

PROPHE is a global network dedicated to building knowledge about one of the most striking tendencies in higher education around the world--the development of large and often vibrant private sectors.

PROPHE's knowledge mission focuses on discovery, analysis, and dissemination, as well as creation of an international base of researchers. PROPHE neither represents nor promotes private higher education. The core activity is scholarship, which, in turn, aims to inform public discussion and policymaking.

PROPHE is directed by Daniel C. Levy, Distinguished Professor of SUNY (State University of New York), and headquartered at the University at Albany.
