Introduction to the Annual International Forum on Higher Education The Annual International Forum on Higher Education (AIFHE) has been held 19 times successively since 2001. Focusing on the significant theoretical and practical issues of higher education reform and development, AIFHE has played a leading role in theoretical research on higher education in China and provided decision-making and advisory services for its reform and development. It has become an international academic event recognized by scholars of higher education, formed a brand effect, and attracted great attention from domestic and foreign government agencies and scholars. AIFHE has brought together a large number of renowned experts and scholars in higher education research around the world, as well as education administrative departments and presidents of universities, with a cumulative attendance of more than 10,000 participants.
