Differenzierung, oft in Verbindung mit Schlagworten wie Exzellenz, Wettbewerb oder Diversität, hat sich seit den 1980er Jahren zu einem hochschulpolitischen Schlüsselbegriff entwickelt. Diese Entwicklung hat in den letzten Jahren durch die weltweite Diskussion über World Class Universities zusätzlichen Auftrieb erhalten. Differenzierung kann in Hochschulsystemen in unterschiedlichen Formen erfolgen, und auch wissenschaftliche sowie hochschulpolitische Debatten über Differenzierung verlaufen entlang verschiedener Diskussionslinien. In diesem Band werden ausgewählte Beiträge zur Differenzierungsdebatte präsentiert, die bei der 8. Jahrestagung der Gesellschaft für Hochschulforschung im März 2013 an der Berliner Humboldt-Universität vorgestellt wurden. Die Beiträge blicken aus nationaler und internationaler Perspektive auf dieses Thema, wobei vier Aspekte zentral sind: (1.) die Systemebene, auf der insbesondere institutionelle horizontale und vertikale Differenzierungsmuster betrachtet werden, (2.) die Wirkungen konkreter Differenzierungsimpulse auf die Hochschullandschaft wie der Etablierung von Qualitätssicherung oder neuen Steuerungsmodellen, (3.) Differenzierungsprozesse, die insbesondere das Hochschulpersonal betreffen, sowie (4.) Differenzierungsprozesse, die sich auf Studierende auswirken.
