Change We Must: Deciding the Future of Higher Education (Release date today) - Otte, Goldstein... Ray Schroeder, Vickie Cook, et al.
President of APLU, Peter McPherson, writes: "This book about change and reform is written by people who have spent their lives in higher education. Their concerns and proposals come from their deep commitment to our purposes and should be taken seriously by other serious people." With chapters by the editors and Schroeder/Cook; Cathy Davidson; Candace Thille; James Hilton; Jonathan Cole; and Michael Zavelle, this book looks closely at the forces at play in higher education and the points to paths of positive change. William Kirwan, Chancellor Emeritus of the University System of Maryland writes “In eight insightful essays and with uncommon wisdom, this anthology addresses major issues confounding American higher education leaders today. From university governance in a time of dramatic change to the challenges and uncertainties of technology-based “disruptions,” the authors provide a thoughtful and hopeful roadmap to the future. It is a 'must read’ for all who care about the well being of our nation’s colleges and universities.” [disclosure note: as indicated, I am a co-author]. http://www.amazon.com/Change-We-Must-Deciding-Education/dp/0795348045/
