Higher education has been increasing in financial complexity with the addition of new arrangements, such as specialized alliances between higher education and industry, joint ventures, spin-off ventures, and new methods of financing residence halls, retirement communities and equipment. The continued competition among social sector entities for both public and expenditure, coupled with increasing demand for higher education at all levels, has resulted in expanded public oversight and demands for accountability. Consequently, greater understanding of all aspects of financing and financial management (past and present as well as projected future) will be required in order to maintain a strong higher education sector. The Reader is intended to serve as a primary resource for scholars and practitioners to support of activities as teaching, conducting research, and policy development in the areas of higher education economics and finance.
