About the Conference:
The higher education system in South Asia has grown in a remarkable way in recent times. However, the system has many issues of  concern at present, like financing and management including access, equity and relevance, reorientation of programmes by laying emphasis on health consciousness, values and ethics and quality of higher education together with the assessment of institutions and their accreditation. These issues are important for South Asian countries, as they are now engaged in the use of higher education as a powerful tool to build a knowledge-based information society of the 21st Century. Recognizing the above and the basic fact, that the Universities have to perform multiple roles, like creating new knowledge, acquiring new capabilities and producing an intelligent human resource pool, through challenging teaching, research and extension activities so as to balance both the need and the demand, the Department of Education (CIE), Delhi University, is organizing an International Conference to address the issues related to understanding the contemporary status of Higher Education in South Asian countries. This conference will present a mix of the latest issues; it will further facilitate the process of understanding the challenges of higher education in South Asian countries as well as will try to explore the possibilities for development.
