Organization and Management of Non-Profit Private Higher Education in a Multi-Ethnic and Multi-Lingual Environment
Farrington, Dennis; Abazi, Alajdin
Online Submission, US-China Education Review v6 n10 p9-16 Oct 2009
The South East European University (SEEU) was founded in 2001 as a non-profit university established by co-operation between OSCE, USAID, the European Commission and the Government of the Republic of Macedonia (or FYROM) as a contribution towards conflict prevention. There has been a gradual transition from a centrally managed project to a modern form of organisation and governance attracting favourable comment from OECD-IMHE and the EUA. In 2008, SEEU was granted by the Parliament of Macedonia the status of public-private, non-profit university, the first in the region, reflecting its emphasis on working in the public interest. The paper illustrates the different stages of the transition, the problems encountered along the way, and suggests lessons to be learned in implementing similar initiatives elsewhere.
