Proposals for this section may include scholarly and empirical works examining local/regional, state, and federal higher education policies, public finance of higher education, and policies and practices related to the economics of higher education. Relevant research may include, but is not limited to affordability, finance, institutional, state, and federal financial aid policies, the economic returns to postsecondary education, the state and federal governmental role in accountability, privatization, government relations, and the politics of higher education, including policy formation and evaluation. Papers that use policy analysis, political science, and/or economic theory to study any dimension of higher education should be submitted to this section (e.g., economic analysis of faculty salaries or college choice).
