Innovation can offer flexibility that enables institutions to adapt more readily in a constantly changing environment. It is a means by which colleges and universities can address concerns typically associated with mature enterprises, create tools to ease increasing cost pressures, and gain efficiency through better operations and better matching of resources and requirements. How best to foster innovations through supportive management is a central topic of this volume.

This is the 137th volume of the quarterly report series New Directions for Higher Education.
