Stuart., PB Mercer University Press PP Macon, Ga. YR 2001 SN 0865547254 9780865547254 AB "During James T. Laney's term of service, Emory grew from a solid regional teaching institution into a major research university. By most salient measures - endowment, student enrollment, faculty size, and square footage - Emory's growth was enormous." "This book examines how Laney accomplished this transformation of Emory. Particular attention is given to Laney's commitment to Emory being a moral community concerned with advancing the common good and developing student morality. This detailed analysis provides insight into Emory's maturation as a leading research university, into the moral leadership given by Laney, and into the development of higher education in this country.". "By exploring the moral authority of Laney himself as well as his commitment to the ideal of institution as a moral community, Gulley provides an important resource for understanding the dynamics of moral leadership. By studying Laney's experience, we can better understand the transformation of Emory University and higher education in the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET.
