Higher Education in the World (HEIW) is a collective work published as part of the GUNi Series on the Social Commitment of Universities. It is the result of a global and regional analysis of higher education in the world. With a specific subject chosen for each edition, the Report reflects on the key issues and challenges facing higher education and its institutions in the 21st century. More than 380 internationally renewed authors from 67 countries have contributed in the GUNi Reports. 19.000 copies have been distributed in 130 countries.
GUNi is currently working on the edition of the Higher Education in the World Report 7 to be published in 2019. The HEIW7 will be devoted to the future of the humanities and the relation between science and humanities in the 21st Century.
The Report is essential reading for university leaders, academics, administrators and policy-makers concerned with all the issues relating to the role of higher education.
Until now GUNi has published six issues plus a synthesis (2009) requested by UNESCO for the World Conference on Higher Education (Paris, 2009). The series include the following titles:
