Edited by Brian P. Nedwek
Facing storms of change within and outside the academy, higher education officials have realized that major realignments are underway creating demographic, economic, political, and cultural imperatives. Quality, accountability, and institutional effectiveness have become part of the culture for stakeholders in higher education. Program directors, department chairpersons, academic deans and their associates, and academic vice presidents are anticipating continued change and are ready to respond in a timely fashion using new planning approaches and techniques.
In assembling this reader, the selection of materials was guided by a sensitivity to provide academic planners with tools to perform core functions and activities that facilitate the transformation of higher education institutions from provider-centered cultures and organizations to leamer-centered franchises. Readings examine partnerships and alliances needed for higher education institutions to survive, if not lead, the transformation of society into the information age.
