Innovative Higher Education features research on current innovations and provocative new ideas with relevance for action for higher education institutions, including innovations at the organization and policy level as well as innovations that improve diversity, equity, and inclusion in higher education. We also focus on innovative approaches to teaching and learning and the potential influence of such innovations on students and faculty.
Innovative Higher Education publishes diverse forms of scholarship and research methods by maintaining flexibility in the selection of topics and methods deemed appropriate for the journal. It strikes a balance between practice and theory by presenting articles in a readable and scholarly manner to both faculty and administrators in the academic community.

We seek manuscripts that:

    • Present fresh ideas in higher education in a straightforward and readable fashion
    • Feature research on current innovations and provocative new ideas with relevance for action beyond the immediate context in higher education
    • Strike a balance between theory and practice
