University Development and Administration


It is a generational work designed to take a comprehensive and utilitarian look at higher education in the first decade of the 21st century and to provide a glimpse of potential developments as the century progresses.  In this regard, it combines many of the intentions found in the three antecedent works previously described.  This series provides basic and (per force) historical perspectives on topics covered that touch upon the impact and approach within universities regarding issues of social justice; designing and fostering a climate and structure that promotes the provision of high skills and new knowledge (transmitted and created); creating schema that ensure the quality and integrity of all programs across the campus; issues and approaches toward establishing and maintaining good external and internal governance; the effective management of financial and human resources; the importance of purpose in generating a viable university structure; the impact of changing paradigms in learning, teaching and student engagement (the changing toward a learner-centred environment); capacities in relation to human and financial resources available to higher education;  and the expectations from and performance of higher education institutions.
