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


A good share of recent work on Private Higher Education that is well-informed by global literature and context, is empirically based, and is more than article length, comes in dissertations. Therefore, PROPHE posts the following overviews, with abstracts. The full works are available for download when possible.
