The nation's 4-year not-for-profit colleges and univ. collectively held more than $400 billion in endowments in 2008. Some institutions' large endowments coupled with the high and growing cost of college have led to questions about institutions' use of endowments. This report describes: (1) the size and change in value of endowments over the last 20 years; (2) the extent and manner to which endowment funds are restricted for financial aid and other purposes; and (3) institutions' distribution of endowment assets. The author selected 10 colleges and univ. for case studies. The case-study instit

  Governments are seeking to channel research funds into universities and other institutions in ways that support high-quality research in strategically important areas and bolster effective knowledge diffusion. These issues of steering and funding have even more relevance in light of the current  financial crisis and economic downturn which have seen severe fiscal pressures fall on many countries.

Informal institutions - family and kinship structures, traditions, and social norms - not only matter for development, but they are often decisive factors in shaping policy outcomes in environments of weak states and poor governance structures. Based on concrete examples in the areas of gender equality, governance and private sector development, this book advocates a pragmatic way of dealing with informal institutions. Neither the "romantic preservationist" nor the "bulldozing modernizer" approach promises an adequate solution. Incorporating informal institutions in development strategies - wh

The success of development programs depends on the role of underlying institutions and the impact synergies from closely related programs. Existing literature has limitations in accounting for these critical factors. This paper fills this gap by developing a methodology, which can quantify both the institutional roles in impact generation and the impact synergies from related programs. The methodology is applied to the Kala Oya Basin in Sri Lanka for evaluating the impacts of three development programs and 11 institutions on food security. The results provide valuable insights on the relative

Institutions that serve large proportions of low-income and minority students may receive funding under Titles III and V of the Higher Education Act. In FY 2008, $667 million in grants were awarded to over 500 institutions. This report determined: (1) the characteristics of institutions eligible to receive grants under Titles III and V and characteristics of students served; (2) challenges grantees face, and how they spent Title III and V funds to address these challenges; and (3) the extent to which the Dept. of Educ. monitors the financial and programmatic performance of grantees, and uses t
