Academic editor: T. Carvalho, C. Sarrico, P. N. Teixeira, A. Magalhães, A. Veiga, M. João Rosa.

In this book it is discussed and reflected how HEIs are coping with the demands placed on them and how the various dimensions of change are intertwined. In particular, the following questions are discussed:

  • How do governance regimes steer higher education institutions? This part of the book focuses its attention on how higher education and research institutions operate under different governance regimes at international, regional and national levels, and how that context shapes governance and management arrangements at institutional level.
  • How are institutions managing their quality and performance? This part deals with the systems institutions are developing to manage their quality and their wider performance to cope with the internal and external forces pressing them to constantly improve their levels of quality and wider performance in teaching, research and third mission.
  • How are higher education professionals responding to the transformations? This part is devoted to investigate the ways academic and non-academic professionals working in higher education and research institutions respond to the transformations occurring in their organisations, and changes in practices and functions performed by those working in higher education. It also explores the implication of higher education transformations on students.
