Academics are under increasing pressure to develop a prototype for the future university that will keep pace with the increasing need for access to lifelong learning. Strategic Choices for the Academy is filled with practical advice for developing strategic plans that will transform colleges and universities to meet the demands of today's (and tomorrow's) information age learner. Drawing on the strategic planning and management concepts presented in their companion books, Strategic Change in Colleges and Universities and Working Toward Strategic Change, the authors reveal which innovative organizational structures, facilities, teaching approaches, reward systems, and delivery systems are most effective for providing education to this new segment of learners-those who come to learn in every stage of life and who may be increasingly reluctant to enroll in traditional campus settings. The book also presents a series of flexible models that can be adapted to the strategic direction and needs of individual institutions.Using the tools and information in Strategic Choices for the Academy, educators and administrators can serve the needs of today's learners and survive and prosper into the future.
