此外，由美國發展而起的校務研究（Institutional Research，IR）能有效提供高等教育機構與互動關係人所需之資訊。為達到這樣的目標，本次研討會將結合高等教育校務研究與品質保證（Quality Assurance，QA），以提升治理品質與校務管理。
Over the past decade, higher education has been facing very new issues in global times, such as massification, international competition, marketization, public accountability, declining governmental funding, resources inequality, quality control, etc.
At the same time, ensuring students' learning outcomes and increasing educational accountability are becoming highly crucial in Asia. Moving forward, many nations with a well-established quality assurance system tend to encourage institutions to make good use of statistical data and scientific analyses in order to have a good quality decision-making policy. Developed and enhanced in the U.S., institutional research (IR) can provide valuable, institutional-level information for decision-making and planning purposes, which is proved to be useful to the varying stakeholders of higher education.
The purpose of this conference is to integrate IR and quality assurance (QA) into higher education to improve governance quality and institutional management.
