William Massy’s long-awaited analysis of higher educationbears out his reputation as an international expert in the field.In his own words, “This book is no jeremiad. Instead ofsimply listing higher education’s flaws, it presents apractical program for improvement – what faculty,institutional leaders, trustees, and oversight bodies can do now toimprove the quality of education without spending more orabandoning other priorities. The diagnosis could have been writtenfive or ten years ago, but it took until now to identify and tryout the interventions.”
Honoring the Trust achieves three major goals: 1) todescribe and document the problems facing today’s collegesand universities, 2) to offer a vision of what the solutions tothese problems will look like, and 3) to provide practical guidancefor those who would be change agents or drivers or change.
Readers ranging from seasonal academic leaders and practitionersto concerned citizens outside of the academy will understand andlearn from the information and ideas that Massy presents inreadable, engaging prose.
