Higher Education is Headed for a Quality Cliff Edge. It Must Help Itself

By any objective analysis, the Irish higher education system is heading for a quality cliff edge. Responsibility for avoiding a crash is not the government’s alone. Can we have a conversation that is open to new, even radical, approaches? In the end more investment will be required but the sector would greatly advance its case if it demonstrated an openness to fundamental change.
