Disruption of higher education in Yemen

In the on-going conflict in Yemen, Houthi forces have disrupted higher education by interfering with curriculum, staffing, and campus life at Yemeni universities. They have replace numerous board members, faculty, and staff with Houthi loyalists, and have introduced courses promoting Houthi ideology. Material for these courses is said to be primarily from Iran.

These changes have damaged the regional and national ranking and accreditation of a number of the universities, most notably the University of Sana'a.
