Financing universities in developing countries (Inglês)

This book addresses the financing crisis facing universities in most parts of the developing world, and in particular with the role that reform may play in easing these financing pressures. The primary focus of the discussion is on degree granting universities, although most of the messages pertain to other institutions as well. The root of the financial crisis in higher education in many developing countries lies in the combination of a dramatic, and continuing, growth in student numbers - the outcome of often imposed liberal admissions policies to ensure wide access to higher education - unmatched by public expenditures on higher education. While low and middle-income countries experienced rapid student enrollment growth in the 1980s, real public expenditures on higher education fell. This erosion in real resources available to universities has stemmed from conditions of general economic hardship ruling in many developing countries, combined in particular with parsimony in government budgets. Policy environments have not been conducive to the promotion of greater internal efficiency within universities nor have they facilitated in these countries the development of alternative, non-government, sources of funding.
