Financing Higher Education


Attempts to maximize the value of higher education while managing costs are no easy feats.  

For generations, governments have been funding higher education from an input based approach (i.e. enrolment).

However, a number of important drivers of change are pushing funding formulas toward the financing of outcomes rather than inputs (or even outputs).

The National Association of State Budget Officers (NASBO) and the Jean-Luc Pepin Research Chair (JLP) at the University of Ottawa jointly convened a one-day symposium to explore the sources of change, performance-based mechanisms to fund higher education and the obstacles to implementation.
