Our Global Reach
Published since 1995 by the Boston College Center for International Higher Education (CIHE), International Higher Education (IHE) is the world’s oldest continuously published source of news and analysis of global higher education. Our mission is to provide insightful, informed, and high-quality commentary and analysis on trends and issues of importance to higher education systems, institutions, and stakeholders around the world.
As such, since our establishment, IHE has aimed to be globally representative, both in terms of the topics covered and the authors represented. Our contributors are drawn from a broad network of distinguished international scholars, policymakers, and leaders, who are well-positioned to offer critical perspectives on key issues and trends that shape higher education worldwide.
The IHE editorial team is also committed to the principle of linguistic diversity. As a result, IHE is translated into Chinese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Vietnamese by partners in China, Brazil, Russia, Chile, and Vietnam. Deutsche Universitäts Zeitung, the main magazine serving German-speaking higher education, published by DUZ Verlags und Medienhaus GmbH in Germany, includes the English version in its magazine.
IHE is distributed all over the world to individual subscribers based in over 100 countries and via partnerships with the International Association of Universities (IAU), the Association of Indian Universities (AIU), the Association of African Universities (AAU), and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
CIHE and IHE partner with international publications, including Higher Education in Southeast Asia and Beyond (HESB), published by the HEAD Foundation in Singapore; and Educación Superior en América Latina (ESAL), published by a consortium of partners in Brazil, Chile, and Colombia.
