On behalf of the Institute of Higher Education’s faculty, staff, and students, I bring greetings to our alumni, colleagues, and friends across the nation and around the world.

Research is at the center of Institute life. Instruction, graduate assistantships, professional development programs, and publications are all affected by the in depth research conducted by IHE faculty. Their research interests cover a wide range of areas including, but not limited to, state and federal public policy, international trends, finance and economic issues, organizational analysis and strategic management in higher education.

Fellows from a wide variety of disciplines and institutions enrich the multi-disciplinary intellectual community at the Institute. 2010 Fellows include:

Christopher Cornwell - Professor of Economics, UGA

Jerry S. Davis - Education Research and Policy Analysis Consultant

Delmer Dunn - Vice President for Instruction Emeritus and Regents Professor Emeritus

Anne Proffitt Dupre - J. Alton Hosch Professor of Law, UGA

Ed.D. students spent a week studying in the Dutch city of Haarlem this summer.

Every six weeks, the locus of activity at the Institute moves 64 miles west from Athens, when our Atlanta-based Ed.D. students convene.
