This project examines trends in higher education sector in India. We use data from the Ministry of Human Resource Development of the Government of India to see trends in privatization of the higher education sector. We also see the gendered aspects of higher education – fields which have higher or lower representation of women faculty and students, and the reasons behind such concentrations. We intend to extend the analysis to see how these mechanisms affect the quality of higher education in India.
