Summary The Higher Education Policy Institute was established in 2002 to shape the higher education policy debate through evidence. We are UK-wide, independent and non-partisan. We are funded by organisations and universities that wish to see a vibrant higher education debate as well as through our own events. Our editorial independence is guarded by an Advisory Board and our Trustees, who conduct a peer review process on all our major projects. Our objectives, as outlined in HEPI’s Articles of Association, are: to promote research into and understanding of all aspects of higher education and to disseminate the useful results of such research for the education and benefit of policy makers and the general public in the United Kingdom.
