    Foreword

    The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) is seized with the task of improving quality excellence in higher education. The rapid growth in the sector, both in terms of enrolment and number of institutions has thrown up new challenges of maintaining quality of higher education. The ministry has identified quality as one of the imperatives of higher education policy framework. In fact 12th Five Year Plan for higher education has put quality at the core of entire plan effort.

    Three main key determinants of quality in higher education are the adequate availability of quality faculty, optimum and adequate infrastructure and resources and availability of third party quality assurance system. It has been observed that while majority of students in higher education go to universities and colleges which come under the state system, they lack adequate resources in terms of manpower and infrastructure. While state governments are striving to address these issues, the Central government has decided to significantly support the states through an ambitious centrally sponsored scheme, namely Rashtriya Uchchtar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA). This is in synch with the objectives of the Planning Commission as stated in the 12th Five Year Planof making the Indian higher education system globally competitive and strong by focusing on state higher education system.

    In October, 2013 the union Cabinet approved the RUSA. The report of RUSA is available in public domain now. Some inputs from that report have also gone into the preparation of the present report by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII). This report is important in light of the role that private sector plays in higher education. More than half of the 96 per cent plus students enrolled in higher education institutes in states go to privately-run universities and colleges. It is very important to monitor quality of education in these institutions.

    While the central government does its bit on that front, it is heartening to see independent organizations such as CII playing a role in creating a national-level platform for states to showcase their efforts in higher education. This is the second edition of the ASHE report and I hope that in years to come, it will create a benchmark of the kind similar to reports by independent organizations in school education sector.
