Main Article Content


In the policy process of higher education, the higher education institutions not only play a role in the policy making process, but also are directly affected by the policies toward building quality culture in their organizations. From this perspective, the paper uses the policy cycle model combined with the Multiple Streams Framework (MSF) of Kingdon (1984) and the quality culture model of the European Union Association (EUA) in order to analyze, clarify and propose groups of solutions to enhance the critical role of higher education institutions in policy process.
