Higher Education Research Group (HERG)

The center provides administrative and academic support to the CEU Higher Education Research Group bringing together faculty, students, and staff members from all units of the university working together on one-off research projects or organizing public events in the area of higher education policy.

Who we are?

The Group's primary aim is to bring together CEU faculty and students and foster collaborative research among those working in the field of higher education policy.

What we do?

HERG will regularly organize research seminars for its members; run public seminars on topics related to the HERG´s work; network and cooperate with similar groups at other universities and with similarly focused academic societies; serve as a policy advise in the relevant research area.

Who can be a member?

The membership is open for academics interested in higher education research from inside and outside of CEU including PhD as well as MA students, former, or current ones and faculty, staff and researchers.
