The Research Institute for Higher Education (RIHE) at Hiroshima University, through special funding by the Ministry of Education and Science in 2008, has been implementing a research project on the reform of higher education in the knowledge-based society of the 21st century. Research into the design of the future higher education system, including university management, is a very important part of this project. Within this framework, RIHE hosted the fourth International Workshop on University Reform under the theme of "University Management, Present and Future: How and By Whom?" from 16 to 17 November, 2011, at Hiroshima University, which was followed by the 39th Annual Study Meeting on the same topic.
