Higher Education Policy

There are various dimensions of higher education policy in any country let alone Sri Lanka. Among these dimensions, one important aspect undoubtedly is what the policy makers think on the issues of higher education and related matters. The aim of this NCAS webpage on "Higher Education Policy" is to provide information to scholars, practitioners and administrators of higher education, particularly in Sri Lanka, to have access to what the ‘thinking is' and ‘thinking behind' the current higher education policy in the country. The information we believe could be used for research as well as for further policy purposes.

We are pleased to begin this webpage by posting the Speeches of the new Minister of Higher Education, Hon. S. B. Dissanayake, while keeping some of the important speeches by the former Minister. The speeches are posted beginning with the recent most one backwards. Also posted are imprtant sections of Mahinda Chintha relevant to higher education. We sincerely acknowledge the cooperation of the Minister in this endeavour and hope to incorporate more and additional useful information on this page in the future.
