Support IAU and help develop WHED

IAU World Higher Education Database (WHED)

Make a Difference! Help to develop WHED and serve the 

higher education community at large!

The International Association of Universities (IAU) is convinced that higher education is a significant force of transformation, human development and peace and advocates for collaborative, multi-dimensional, equitable and fair cooperation among HEIs and stakeholders across the world, with a focus on sustainability and an increase in quality for the good of humanity. The world is facing a variety of challenges – health and environmental hazards, economic uncertainty, international insecurity, and disruptive new technologies, to name a few. It is through higher education that future leaders, experts, and change makers become empowered to overcome these challenges - it is the IAU’s task to maximize opportunities to do so.

Thank you for supporting IAU’s wide range of programmes and activities in the interest of higher education.

>> Support the World Higher Education Database (WHED) 

One of the major projects of the IAU is the World Higher Education Database (WHED). The IAU was tasked 70 years ago with the mapping of the higher education landscape – we are still doing that today by providing detailed information on nearly 20,000 higher education institutions listed and on 196 national educational systems. The aim is to offer better transparency and understanding of the HE systems and institutions worldwide.

The WHED is continuously expanding and calls for constant enhancement.  Help us ensure it serves the higher education community at large. We invite you to support this unique tool and to contribute to its ongoing development. 

>> Support the IAU General Fund

A donation to the IAU General Fund is a powerful form of support as it allows the contribution to be allocated where the need is greatest and help the Association advance its programme for the benefit of the higher education sector on a global scale. Especially the four priorities: Internationalization of Higher Education, Technology in HE, and Sustainable Development in Higher Education.
