The city of San Carlos is known to have important centers of research aimed at developing high technologies, which are: Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar), the University of São Paulo (USP). Thus, the portion of the population of students who are not from the city of San Carlos, but it has to be present daily to provide their respective courses in San Carlos, has the need to rent property. The housing market, in turn, uses the application of capital to meet the demands of students and business is taking steps that make the production of space and provide new scope of the place, giving new meaning to the settings and new residents. This work goes towards understanding the students, social workers, boosting growth in this market and the influences of space and real estate agents and their actions materialized in space to meet this demand; A cidade de São Carlos é conhecida por ter importantes centros de pesquisas voltados a desenvolver altas tecnologias, sendo eles: Universidade Federal de São Carlos (UFSCar) e Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Dessa forma, a parcela populacional de estudantes que não são da cidade de São Carlos, mas tem que estar diariamente presente para prestar os seus respectivos cursos em São Carlos...

A observação do atual panorama do ensino de língua latina em algumas universidades brasileiras, conforme traçado por vários autores, permite constatar que grande parte dos problemas aí encontrados se devem, entre outras causas, a uma metodologia originária de concepções incertas quanto aos objetivos do ensino de uma língua com as características do latim. Partindo da análise de um método de ensino dessa língua, considerado dos mais completos à disposição atualmente, inclusive no que tange à consideração nele feita da própria cultura clássica (Reading Latin, criado há duas décadas pelos professores Peter Jones [University of Newcastle Upon Tyne, U.K.] e Keith Sidwell [St. Patrick?s College, Irlanda] e utilizado em universidades como a Federal do Paraná [UFPR] e a Estadual de Campinas [UNICAMP]), pretende-se justamente investigar as razões e a metodologia que têm levado os estudantes das universidades públicas do Estado de São Paulo, em especial, a estudar e aprender latim. Concebido, pois, o emprego de um método produzido em língua diferente do português em universidades brasileiras, nossa pesquisa toca em questões fundamentais, relativas (1) às perspectivas do ensino de latim para o nível superior...

At the beginning of the 21st century, colleges and universities have realized that they need to have more than a well-planned campus and top-ranked academic programs to attract students and faculty. Rather, they need to have a complementary "town/gown" relationship with their host community. The "college town" -a quintessentially American ideal city formcan provide a very high quality of life, both for students of college-age and for faculty, alumni, and retirees who choose to live in these towns. But what if the existing town falls short? In recent years, several universities in North America have sought to remedy perceived deficiencies in their "college towns" by going into the town planning business-planning new neighborhoods, new commercial centers, or even whole new towns adjacent to their campuses. They are quite literally engaged in "placemaking" and they are developing these new neighborhoods and communities in the shadow of fundamentally place-based institutions. Furthermore, as universities seek to expand their physical campuses, they often find themselves entering the field of real estate development-buying up land, developing it, and trying to find the optimal fit between the existing campus, the existing town, and new development.This thesis explores this new phenomenon through profiles of four projects: The Ohio State University and the South Campus Gateway (Columbus...

Seeing that public budget is a comprehensive subject, different knowledge areas have carried out several studies of it. Public budget is highly relevant to Public Management mainly for involving the participation of citizens in its design and implementation. Higher Education Federal Institutions (HEFI) are indirect administration entities which are essential for the country economic and social development and their managers are public administration agents in charge of public resources management.

This study followed a qualitative research approach to investigate how welleducated professionals see the role of formal education in building human capital. Individuals need to understand the relationship between education and their human capital to justify the time and money they invested to get their education. Colleges and universities need to know the value of their output, to better value and promote the process of knowledge production and transmission and help the general public appreciate their work more. While the importance of a good education is a key factor in the success of learners, this study revealed the power of social capital in making this success a reality. It may not be enough for an individual to acquire good education to guarantee a better future. The power of social connections can be the main determinant in one’s wellbeing. This study shows that it is important to address students’ life outside school beside the importance of a classroom education.

This study looks at the contribution of the university system in Vietnam to the socioeconomic development in general, and their relationship with firms, dynamic actors of the economy in particular. The study uses different methods of research, from reliance on secondary data to interviews with universities and survey of firms. Several case studies of the key universities in four regions have been undertaken: Hanoi in the north, Danang in the center, and Ho Chi Minh City and Cantho in the south of Vietnam. The findings show that the role of Vietnamese universities in research is much weaker than teaching, and that their contribution to the socioeconomic development of the country is limited to the production of an educated labor force rather than innovation. However, in selected universities, innovation did take place to a certain extent and brought benefits for both the universities and firms they served. This situation is explained by both the inherited university system in Vietnam and its shift in behavior in the context of economic renovation and globalization.

There are many important questions to ask about the widespread push toward world-class status for universities around the world. Why is 'world-class' the standard to which a nation should aspire to build at least a subset of its tertiary education system? Might many countries be better served by developing the most locally relevant system possible, without concern for its relative merits in a global comparison? Is the definition of "world-class" synonymous with "elite Western" and therefore inherently biased against the cultural traditions of tertiary education in non-Western countries? Are only research universities world-class, or can other types of tertiary education institutions (such as teaching universities, polytechnics, community colleges, and open universities) also aspire to be among the best of their kind in an international perspective? To answer these questions, the report starts by constructing an operational definition of a world-class university. It then outlines and analyzes possible strategies and pathways for establishing such universities and identifies the multiple challenges...

A nation's utilization and creation of knowledge endeavors are globally acknowledged as the driving forces for economic development and competitiveness. Public and private investments in institutions of higher education and research require strengthening in tandem with the development of a regulatory environment that supports national and institutional growth. In recognition of these issues, the Government of Bangladesh's first Higher Education Strategic Plan (2006-2026) proposed a long-term development plan for the higher education sector, recommending that the plan will need to be cognizant of both universities and the Bangladesh National University-affiliated colleges where the majority of post-secondary graduates are enrolled. This study addresses challenges faced by a major part of the higher education sector in Bangladesh - the colleges. The objectives of the study are to: a) review and analyze the college education system of Bangladesh and b) identify policy options which will guide the government as it prepares a long-term strategy to improve the quality and relevance of higher education. This report is divided into the four key areas ripe for reform: a) access and equity...

This study strives to sketch an initial map of the extent and nature of institutional and program differentiation within African systems of tertiary education. In doing so, it also seeks to chart the patterns of articulation that have emerged or been consciously put in place between the different institutional types (such as public universities, private universities, polytechnics, training colleges). The analysis of tertiary education differentiation and articulation is based on field visits to a dozen selected African countries. Its purpose is to improve general understanding of this under-researched but strategically important technical aspect of African higher education at a time when it is becoming an important aspect of education policy. African countries display far more differentiation than articulation within their tertiary education systems. Their systems are quite diverse and can be classified as unitary, binary, trinary, semi-differentiated or fully differentiated, depending upon the number of different institutional types that comprise the tertiary system. In general...

The Annual Bank Conference on Development Economics (ABCDE) is one of the best-known conferences for the presentation and discussion of new knowledge on development. It is an opportunity for many of the world's finest development thinkers to present their ideas. The papers in this volume were presented at the ABCDE that was held on January 16-17, 2007, in Beijing, China. Each year the topics selected for the conference represent either new areas of concern for future research or areas that the author believes will benefit from a reexamination. The topic of the 2007 conference was 'higher education and development,' which encompassed five themes: higher education and migration, private-public provision of higher education, financing of higher education, technological innovation (linkages between universities and industry), and higher education and labor markets in Asia.

Since the transition from a planned economy to a market-based democracy in the early 1990s, Mongolian higher education has experienced a marked expansion. Between 1992 and 2007, the number of tertiary education institution (TEIs) has increased more than four-fold and enrollment more than six-fold, with the gross enrollment ratio growing from 14 to 47 percent. This rapid growth has been fueled by the increased demand for higher skills in the labor market and has led to rising education premia. These trends, in turn, have stimulated increased household demand for tertiary education. In the early 1990s, the liberalization of the economy and the legalization of private higher education made it possible to increase the supply of tertiary education. However, this expansion in supply has been met with the charging of tuition fees in public universities and the growth of private institutions. As a result, public expenditure on higher education has been contained to about 14 percent of total expenditure, compared with over 20 percent in China. Although this policy has met the need for an increased supply of tertiary education...

This study analyzes the economic returns to schooling decisions made by high school graduates in Colombia -- We wanted to verify if the economic returns (wages) obtained by newly postsecondary education graduates compensate the economic and psychological investment they made in order to get that academic degree -- To answer that question, we estimated these economic returns for each type of postsecondary degree available in Colombia by origin of the institution (public or private) -- Our methodological strategy includes the generation of a micro-data base that contains agents’ socio-economic background and also their individual labor market outcomes -- Because agents with very similar characteristics and the same schooling decisions might get different economic returns from education, we considered as part of our empirical strategy the inclusion of an approximation of agents’ cognitive abilities

I recently and informally polled a number of sitting and past Vice Chancellors as well as senior university administrators on the question: Are South African universities less autonomous today than they were before 1994? With one exception, all of them agreed that this was indeed the case; that universities enjoy less autonomy today than under apartheid. This immediately raises a series of follow-up questions. First, what exactly is the substance or content of this loss of autonomy? Second, how did this erosion of autonomy happen; in other words, what were the forces that enabled this loss of autonomy within the universities? And third, if autonomy was such a prized attribute in the institutional struggle against apartheid, why is there so little public outcry against the erosion of what TB Davie in his eloquent and durable formulation described as the right to decide who shall teach, what we teach, how we teach, and whom we teach? To respond to these questions it might be useful to begin by making explicit some starting claims and assumptions which I hold about the relationship between the state and universities.

The United Way is an organization that exists for the purpose of helping people in need and bringing about positive social outcomes for the public good. Raising sufficient funds through donations continues to be a challenge in the face of decreasing public assistance, and increased cynicism in the United Way caused by the United Way scandal of 1992. The general downward trend of donations to non-profit organizations is reflected in the donations to the Rochester Institute of Technology's United Way campaign. In the past, employee participation in RIT's United Way campaign was 73%, which has been decreasing throughout the years to a low of 60.5% in 1997. In order to reverse this downward trend, the non-profit organization should be analyzed using the same methods of analysis used in for-profit organizations. One method is use of a questionnaire to determine if the United Way is meeting the needs of its "customers", and also if the campaign events and awareness efforts are effective. The needs of the "internal customers" of RIT's United Way campaign, the Key Captains, are examined as well as the methods used to train the Key Captains. The responses to one major change in the campaign, the distribution method of pledge cards, were also solicited. Two questionnaires were sent through interoffice mail. The first survey was sent to all RIT faculty and staff...

This research investigates how university selection practices vary according to institutional reputation and course popularity through an examination of English university admissions and recruitment policies and practices. It seeks to evaluate what implications this has for equity in terms of student access to higher education. The research examines data from semi-structured interviews carried out in 2008/09 with admissions and recruitment from staff working at four case study institutions, selected to reflect some of the diversity in the HE market. Admissions policies and practices using information given on University and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) forms, interviews, conditional offers and after A Level results have been published, are analysed. This is complemented with a multivariate analysis of UCAS data for students seeking to enter higher education in 2006/07 to test the generalisability of the qualitative findings. Quantitative analyses show how the use of discretion in conditional offers is associated with student background characteristics, course popularity and institutional reputation. Following this, institutional recruitment practices are analysed, first through an examination of ‘general’ recruitment policies and practices aimed at the consumer market as a whole...
