International Perspectives in Higher Education offers a balanced perspective on how different countries approach key policies and what the United States can learn from those programs. Jason D. Delisle and Alex Usher have gathered a diverse group of experts to examine systems across the globe with a focus on the trade-offs between access, cost, and quality.

Praise

The book brings important international insights concerning two key policy themes in higher education—access and funding—to the American debate. Too often, Americans ignore the experience of other countries. This book specifically aims at providing an international perspective to domestic issues. We can indeed learn a lot from others. — Philip G. Altbach, research professor and founding director, Center for International Higher Education, Boston College

The tendency of US higher education reformers to propose importing policies such as free tuition and income-driven student loan repayment from other countries often goes unchallenged. But what if such measures come with many complications and unintended consequences? In this illuminating collection, edited by two of our savviest observers of US and global higher education finance, readers will find many cautionary tales—and a healthy respect for the trade-offs and complexities of real-world efforts to expand college access. — Ben Wildavsky, independent higher education consultant and author of The Great Brain Race: How Global Universities Are Reshaping the World
