Editorial Reviews

Review

This collection of essays by presidents and other leaders in higher education is both clear-sighted about challenges facing small, liberal arts colleges and inspiring for the ways in which it clearly illustrates both the great flexibility of the sector and the deeply held values that fuel its continuing creativity.

(S. Georgia Nugent, President, Kenyon College)

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Higher education, particularly in the liberal arts, is under attack both from those who think that it should be limited to an elite few and from those who think it should serve a purely instrumental purpose - to help graduates find their first job. This well-crafted volume helps the reader understand the importance of the liberal arts for society in general, and the void that would be created were we to ignore them. An important read.

Repetitiveness ad nauseum detract from the book's impact. Still, there is a core of useful advice. It should be especially useful for university and college administrators, as well as tenure track faculty concerned about shared governance.
