"Higher education serves multiple important roles in societies, including the intellectual development of each person who takes part and economic, social and cultural development. A vibrant higher education system is a key contributor to individual personal achievement and to the creation of successful societies and economies. The IMHE provides a valuable forum where the policies and practices underlying vibrant higher education systems can be identified, discussed and widely disseminated. This is of immediate direct benefit to participating agencies, and institutions and their students. In the long run it is of benefit to all humankind. "
Tom Boland, Chief Executive, Higher Education Authority, Ireland
