HSE Launches New Informational Newsletter ‘Higher Education in Russia and Beyond’

On May 21, 2014, the Higher School of Economics published the first issue of a new informational newsletter – ‘Higher Education in Russia and Beyond’ (HERB), a supplement to International Higher Education bulletin, which aims to present current Russian, Central Asian and Eastern European educational trends to the international higher education research community. The bulletin is published by the HSE in association with the Boston College Center for International Higher Education.

Each issue of HERB will be dedicated to a specific topic and will contain both analytics and independent expert opinion.

 ‘We believe that knowing about the changes in this region in terms of higher education systems will be beneficial in a wider international context,’ said Maria Yudkevich, Vice Rector of the HSE and Chief Editor of HERB.

The first issue (Spring 2014) is focused on a major Russian ‘excellence initiative’ — the Global Competitiveness of Leading Russian Universities Program — which aims to make Russian universities world-class research universities.

 ‘We hope that HERB develops into an expert discussion platform dedicated to the issues of higher education in post-socialist countries,’ said Maria Yudkevich.
