From the Editors The field of economics has the potential to greatly inform our understanding of higher education, and hence institutional research. In this volume of New Directions for Institutional Research, we provide an overview of the many ways that eco-nomic concepts, models, and methods have been, and can be, applied to higher education problems encountered in institu-tional research. The chapter authors are uniquely qualified to provide this perspective: all are higher education researchers who have received graduate training in economics and have substantial experience working directly in institutional research. The chapters in this volume focus on the economists perspective on education costs and revenues, how economics can inform enrollment management efforts, and how institutional researchers can use economics to understand labor market issues for faculty.
