Global Higher Education Forum (GHEF)

The Global Higher Education Forum (GHEF) serves as a platform for multi-stakeholders (such as academics, students, government agencies, policymakers, NGO, and industries) to discuss issues confronting the higher education ecosystem to promote discourse on higher education and to address related challenges and develop potential solutions. The forum provides an avenue to consider concepts, experiences, practices, and research findings on diverse issues in higher education from various countries, contexts, and perspectives. GHEF is organised collaboratively by the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia (MOHE) and Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM). The National Higher Education Research Institute (IPPTN) serves as GHEF secretariat.
