Higher education is considered a right in many countries. For many developing countries the challenge is to provide more access but using limited resources. This book examines the state of higher education in Zimbabwe since independence. The author analyses the factors that have influenced the development university education in the country and makes some suggestions on the way forward.This study was undertaken to determine the impact of resource allocation on the performance of faculty at public universities in Zimbabwe. These institutions are facing reduced public funding of enormous proportions and yet student enrolments have been increasing rapidly as a response to post independence measures taken to redress colonial imbalances. The net result is, while quantitative gains, in terms of access, have been achieved, the quality of university education has been decreasing. Not only is the book of interest to scholars, researchers and policy makers within Zimbabwe but it also provides information to scholars and researchers in the fields of international and global education as well as economics of education.
