The International Association of Universities is immensely pleased to launch the book “The Promise of Higher Education: Essays in Honour of 70 Years of IAU” as part of our ongoing anniversary celebrations. We thank all the colleagues and friends for their insightful contributions. This impressive collection of 65 essays by 82 authors from all around the world represents a fine analysis of and reflection on the past, current and future of higher education and is a wonderful testament to the work of the IAU over the years and into the future. Available online through open access, this book will take you on a tour across the global higher education landscape while addressing pertinent themes and challenges in higher education.
