  1. 1. HIGHER EDUCATION FORUM 1st Annual Convention 2010 Theme Towards Excellence in Higher Education Saturday 6th March 2010 Welingkar Institute of Management Development & Research Matunga, Mumbai
  2. 2. About HEF Vision To help transform higher education in India as one of the best in the world Brief about HEF Higher Education Forum (HEF) is a voluntary non-profit group of individuals as well as organizations representing various stakeholders directly or indirectly associated with any form of higher education in India. The word higher education here means any stream of education after 12th standard i.e. graduation onwards to doctoral program, technical areas like engineering, professional courses including management education, among others. It also includes all types of vocational educational programs in India after 12th standard. Besides institutional partners, the members of the Forum include academicians & teaching community spanning all areas / sectors, corporate executives, academic entrepreneurs, management professionals, scientists, engineers, and all those committed to growth & development of higher education in India and abroad. The Forum was launched about a year ago by a number of academicians and corporate representatives to create “voice of individuals” in the space of higher education, with a strong belief that reforms in higher education is imperative, if India is to find a place in the league of nations on a sustainable basis in the years to come. The Forum was started as a Google group and continues to be so. Today there are more than 1,600 members representing various stakeholders from the field of higher education. The Forum is shortly proposing to form itself into a legal entity and aims to emerge as the “voice of practitioners” for reforms in various areas of higher education in India.
