Praise for the 1st Edition
"This theory-rich volume is peppered with practical applications throughout, making it the tutorial that this generation of academic leaders, faculty, and graduate students need to understand and respond to routine and non-routine actions and events, on and off the campus."
George D. Kuh, Chancellor’s Professor Emeritus of Higher Education, Indiana University
"Manning has precisely condensed, updated, and translated the germinal organizational theoretical texts and meticulously interpreted the material with an intuitively global lens. The cases in Organizational Theory in Higher Education provide a refreshing perspective on the current trends and issues impacting higher education. Readers see and hear the voices of view of minoritized people and women throughout the text, which is a testament to Manning's understanding of the shifting organizational landscape of this ‘mature industry’."
Mary Howard-Hamilton, Distinguished Research Professor of Educational Leadership, Indiana State University
"Manning illuminates multiple theoretical frameworks that contribute to understanding the organization and administration of higher education. This edition is a ‘must read’ for graduate students who desire to understand both ‘traditional’ and contemporary theories that explain, in part, how higher education functions. Although the text is written primarily for doctoral and master's students, it is a worthy read for administrators, faculty, and staff seeking to enhance their understanding of the complex structure that is U.S. higher education."
Dorian L. McCoy, Associate Professor of Educational Leadership & Policy Studies and Coordinator, College Student Personnel (CSP) Program, University of Tennessee, Knoxville
