This edited volume examines the importance of quality issues in contemporary higher education systems in the Asia Pacific. Part One foregrounds relevant discussions of ‘quality’ within today’s globalized, interconnected, and complex higher education systems while Part Two focuses on selected universities in the Asia Pacific region. Chapter contributors discuss how quality issues and quality assurance mechanisms are implemented in their situation-specific systems. Part Three extends the research of higher education quality assurance in Hawaii Pacific University (HPU) and the diverse international student body in the Australian higher education system. The conclusion chapter discusses a typology of methods used by higher education systems in establishing effective quality assurance mechanisms.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Neubauer and Gomes have assembled diverse and rich perspectives on the challenges facing higher education in the Asia Pacific region. They point to ways of assessing quality on a continuum, against transnational standards, and in achieving strategic plans.” (William M. Plater, Chancellor’s Professor Emeritus of Public Affairs, Philanthropic Studies, and English, Indiana University, USA)

“This timely volume delves deeply into what quality means for institutions, and how they ensure, assure, and demonstrate quality. The editors develop a useful device for institutions to consider in their journey towards quality. This book deserves the attention of institutional leaders, funding agencies, and all concerned with the quality of our higher education institutions.” (Lily Kong, Provost; Lee Kong Chian Chair Professor of Social Sciences, Singapore Management University)
