Research on Higher Education in Russia: Is It Ever To Become an Interdisciplinary Endeavor? ASHE Annual Meeting Paper.
Suspitsin, Dmitry A.
This paper offers a comparative analysis of the organization of higher education research in Russia and the United States. It notes that in the United States higher education is generally viewed as a field of study, whereas in Russia higher education is considered to be an area of emphasis associated with individual disciplines. The paper first describes the overall Russian system of higher education and its research infrastructure and then offers an historical overview of the system's development. The paper also examines the mechanisms of promotion, dissemination, and research funding in higher education in Russia. It concludes that Russian education would benefit from the interdisciplinary approach to higher education research and urges the establishment of graduate programs in higher education administration that would also prepare researchers for the study of higher education.
