Acknowledging that research on various aspects of higher education is limited in India; the HRD ministry has proposed setting up a Centre for Policy Research in Higher Education. CPRHE would be an independent autonomous research organisation to be registered under the Societies Act, but fully and liberally funded by the Centre or UGC.
It would be headed by an eminent scholar and will consist of inter-disciplinary-oriented faculty of about 10, drawn from areas like economics, sociology, philosophy, history, political science and public administration. The proposal comes in the wake of a large-scale transformation that is expected in the higher education sector in the coming years. Building a strong, vibrant and sustainable higher education edifice that makes a significant contribution to national development, requires deep knowledge of the system, how it evolved over the years, the concept note says, adding that present higher education research has been lopsided. CPRHEs mission is to become a knowledge warehouse and a cutting edge centre of research on higher education policy.
