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


PROPHE depends heavily on the development of its international network of members. An aspiration is that members operate increasingly as a Group, with overlapping yet autonomous agendas, frameworks, and methods. PROPHE also has a mission in building a global base of young scholars.
