Abstract:

"The complex structure of large universities, along with the diversity of their educational programs, complicates the task of improving undergraduate education. For universities with multiple missions, the competing demands of scholarship, research, and public service create tensions in allocating faculty time to teach undergraduates, and the reward structures carry the message that time is better spent elsewhere. Yet this diversity and complexity also afford tremendous potential benefits for students. This volume... examines the major issues in planning, implementation, and evaluation that large institutions must address in order to use their educational resources for greater benefit to their undergraduates."--From publisher.
