Capano, Giliberto; Pritoni, Andrea – Higher Education Quarterly, 2019
Over the last 30 years, governments have continuously adjusted their Higher Education policies to make universities more efficient (achieving more by spending less) and more effective (by increasing the percentage of graduates, by reducing the number of university dropouts and by focusing more on the third mission). At the core of governmental…

Donina, Davide; Hasanefendic, Sandra – Higher Education Quarterly, 2019
This paper addresses the homogeneous/heterogeneous dilemma regarding formal arrangements of university central governance structures.

Yet, other scholars stress heterogeneity within countries. This…

Cattaneo, Mattia; Horta, Hugo; Malighetti, Paolo; Meoli, Michele; Paleari, Stefano – Higher Education Quarterly, 2019
Due to significant government cuts to Higher Education funding in Southern European systems, their already underfunded universities were forced to increasingly compete for students as sources of additional revenue. Concurrently, families and students that continued to afford participation in Higher Education became more selective when choosing a…

Posselt, Thorsten; Abdelkafi, Nizar; Fischer, Luise; Tangour, Cyrine – Higher Education Quarterly, 2019
During the last decades, there has been increasing interest in the role of the university as a key stakeholder and agent in innovation and regional development.

Pizarro Milian, Roger; Missaghian, Rod – Higher Education Quarterly, 2019
Interdisciplinary programmes have proliferated across post-secondary education in recent decades. Despite this, little attention has been paid to the manner in which interdisciplinary programmes promote themselves to external constituents. To study this process, we conduct a content analysis of the online self-descriptions of 203…

This paper proposes a benefit of the doubt (BoD) approach to assess the research performance of 37 public Australian universities based on data from 2015. The primary activities of Higher Education institutions are teaching and research, but the prestige of a university depends mainly on the results of its research activities. The BoD method is…

Barnacle, Robyn; Schmidt, Christine; Cuthbert, Denise – Higher Education Quarterly, 2019
Expertise is under sustained interrogation. We see it in so-called edu-scepticism and pessimism about graduates' apparently diminishing employment prospects, challenges to the role of Higher Education institutions as arbiters of knowledge and post-truth rhetoric more broadly. This paper examines how the PhD is being discursively positioned in this…

McNaughtan, Jon; McNaughtan, Elisabeth Day – Higher Education Quarterly, 2019
In recent years, technology has made it possible, and in some ways critical, for college and university presidents to increase campus-wide communication. Following the 2016 US presidential election, many college presidents across the country sent campus-wide communications in response to the election, while others chose not to respond. The…

Hladchenko, Myroslava; Westerheijden, Don F. – Higher Education Quarterly, 2019
Employing the Twenty Statements Test and a framework of self-motives (self-esteem, self-efficacy, authenticity), this paper examines the self-concept of Ukrainian doctoral students while means-ends decoupling takes place at the state level. The latter implies that the practices of state policies are disconnected from the state's core goal of…
