Demographic changes, economic growth and integration into the global economy, the rising demand for higher education, and the increase in the number of private colleges have led to a massive expansion in indian higher education. However, much of this expansion has been of dubious quality, the result of severe regulatory and governance failures. This book analyses the multiple and complex challenges facing higher education in india, and suggests possible solutions. The contributors highlight a range of issues facing higher education today, through a deeply moving account of the decline of a college in north bihar, discussions on the various types of post-secondary educational institutions, initiatives such as community colleges, and the financing and governance of higher education in india. The book combines diverse methodologies: Ethnography of institutions, case studies and data-based work.
