Overview

Rising costs, increasing global competition, intensifying calls for accountability—all these pressures are bearing down upon the status quo of higher education today. Governments, funders, students, and parents are demanding strategic improvements in all aspects of postsecondary education. Reform cannot happen slowly—colleges and universities must take a rapid and dynamic approach to change. The answer lies in innovation, as this book shows, to promote fresh ideas and bring higher education professionals together to effect real and dramatic change.

Editorial Reviews

Alan Seidman
Hoffman and Spangehl present concrete examples of innovations in higher education that will encourage students to reach their objectives as they move through their higher education programs. The editors have brought together a group of experienced contributors who are experts in presenting innovative ideas to help students achieve success. Their stories are compelling and will enlighten and encourage others to follow along similar paths.
Edward J. Valeau
The editors and contributors have rightly concluded that institutional change is slow and moves at a glaciers pace. They provide great valuable insight into not only the need for change but the requisite collaboration to do so. This book provides the practitioner with success stories and the tools used to bring about change which is rarely done in books written today on change and innovation. It is a must read for college administrators and boards interested in leadership, innovation, institutional effectiveness and starting a conversation in on how to make it happen.
