The most complex social challenges – such as post-secondary access and success for under-represented students, diversification of the workforce, poverty, environmental degradation, and global health – exceed the problem-solving capacity of single organizations or societal sectors. Organizing for Social Partnership provides colleges and universities, corporations, government agencies, nonprofits, and other organizations with a model for how to effectively address these and other pressing social issues through strong, effective collaboration. This valuable book is relevant for graduate students enrolled in courses on postsecondary organization and governance, equity and diversity, access, administration, and contemporary issues. Organizing for Social Partnership will also spark dialogue among higher education leaders and their counterparts in business, government, and the social sector.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"[This book] provides the reader with a stimulating framework to rethink organizations for a fairer world. As such, it is of huge interest both for faculties and practitioners working on diversity and social justice as well as for researchers interested in organizational studies."--Teachers College Record  

"Organizing for Social Partnership: Higher Education in Cross-sector Collaboration significantly contributed to the discussion of increasing diversity in the workplace by presenting why diversity is needed, how to form cross-sector partnerships, and suggestions for further social partnerships."—Education Review

"In addition to its multiple virtues as a methodologically sound, theoretically well-grounded, and meticulously researched project, Siegel’s book is simply enjoyable reading. The wealth of the observational, interview, and document data gathered for this case study is an inexhaustible source of stories and metaphors that enliven and elucidate the discussion."—Journal of College Student Development
