Overview

Author William G. Tierney addresses the problems that many academic institutions have today in clinging to the practices and organization of the past. He argues that institutions of higher learning are in need of dramatic organizational changes. The chapters look at key critical issues - faculty roles and rewards, presidential leadership, strategic planning, assessment and evaluation - utilizing the latest ideas to bring about structural reform and high performance. The timely volume takes a data-driven approach, using research derived from ethnographies, case studies, and interviews carried out by the author over the past 15 years. By outlining many of the organizational problems that colleges and universities face today, Tierney reveals workable solutions.
