“The book is content rich for those looking for detailed background information on a wide range of topics. The list is far too long to repeat here, but suffice it to say that this is a comprehensive work that addresses issues related to organizational dynamics, policy frameworks, government interests, academic programs, faculty responsibilities, trusteeship, global education, legal matters, strategic planning, and, of course, student success. If there is one comprehensive text you are prepared to study about higher education, make it this one.”―The Department Chair
