The Journal of Economic Development in Higher Education

JEDHE is dedicated to the study of university-­led economic development. JEDHE examines:

  • ways in which institutions of higher education foster competitiveness through human capital formation
  • research and innovation
  • quality-­of-­place strategies that make communities attractive places to live, work, operate businesses, and raise families.

Because knowledge sharing is integral to our mission and members, UEDA encourages submissions on new frameworks, theories, or concepts; data-­driven research articles; program evaluations; qualitative or quantitative case studies that highlight or analyze the role played by institutions of higher education and/or opinion pieces related to the topics above.
