Higher education policy involves the intersection between institutions of higher learning and governments. The field is concerned with understanding how policies concerning higher education come to be enacted, the effects of those policies, and how to change policies to accomplish societal goals. The study of higher education policy includes research investigating the ways in which governments oversee their institutions of higher education (governance), how governments pay for higher education (finance), how students and families pay for higher education (student financial aid and tuition), why certain policies are adopted (politics of higher education policy), and the implications of policies for particular sectors of higher education.
