Four years have elapsed since Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA) was flagged off by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India in 2014 with a vision to transform the state higher education institutions in India into repositories of excellence. It is time that the impact created by RUSA is assessed to celebrate its achievements and act as guided by the learnings to keep hitting greater milestones in the years to come.

The National Higher Education Resource Centre (NHERC) is leading this shared endeavor of the stakeholders of India’s higher education sector by translating it into systematic evidence-based research studies to engender knowledge and policy perspectives that cross traditional boundaries of research. This would equip key leaders of the higher education sector with practical insights and tools to steer policy praxis in the sector to the end of achieving excellence.

NHERC is crafting systematic evidence-based research studies engendering knowledge and insights to inform higher education policy. Our interventions are geared towards enabling higher education institutions to pursue excellence and address fundamental issues concerning quality in teaching & learning outcome, curriculum, research and other relevant areas. We combine innovative thinking and rigorous approaches to enhance policy outcomes in the higher education sector in India.
