Overview

With almost half a century of experience as student, faculty member, and dean, Abraham L. Gitlow offers new insight into and understanding of persistent problems in our universities and colleges. His analysis examines the value structure and mind-set of faculty and how this affects the self-governing institution of the university. Also unique to this field of study is the investigation of the professional school in the university and Gitlow's look at accreditation and fund-raising. Reflections on Higher Education will appeal to university and college administrators (present and future) and faculty, government officials dealing with universities and colleges, members of the general public with interest in higher education, and students and teachers of courses in Higher Education Administration.

Editorial Reviews

McGeorge Bundy
Abe Gitlow, out of a lifetime's experience as a student, teacher, scholar, and dean, has written a remarkably direct and honest assessment of American higher education, seen from the vantage point of New York University's Stern School of Business. Those who know Abe will not be surprised at the force, frankness, and humanity of his views.
James M. Hester
Dr. Gitlow has written a thoughtful analysis and commentary on central issues in higher education based on solid, front-line experience over many years. He pulls no punches in revealing the way hard decisions in the academy are made. His is an extremely useful contribution to understanding the reality of American higher education.
George P. Shultz

The Public Interest editor
Abraham Gitlow is one of our wisest students of, and commentators on, higher education in general, and professional education in particular. He brings a life-long experience, a sharp intellect, and an impatience with conventional dogma, to his subject.
