Abstract:

"American higher education faces some serious problems--but they are not the ones most people think. In this brief and accessible book, William G. Bowen and Michael S. McPherson provide a frank assessment of the biggest challenges confronting higher education and propose a bold agenda for reengineering essential elements of the system to meet them. The result promises to help shape the debate about higher education for years to come. It won't be easy for faculty, administrators, trustees, and legislators to make the necessary changes, but only by doing so will they make it possible for our colleges and universities to meet the nation's demands tomorrow and into the future."
