Drawing on his 30 years as a higher education administrator and policymaker, Peter Smith exposes this hidden crisis in American higher education and makes recommendations for its transformation. Through research data and stories, he argues, clearly and forcefully that our schools are organized for failure and that our historic “industrial model” simply won’t make the grade to compete in the knowledge economy. Unless we rethink higher education profoundly, we will serve a declining percentage of the population successfully each year, and thus we will fail in our mission to create, teach, and sustain the next generation of leaders.
This book will appeal not only to teaching faculty and academic administrators, but also to political leaders, parents, and anyone else who cares about the future of the academy and the bigger picture a successful educational system informs.
