Edited by Katharine M. Broton and Clare L. Cady
Foreword by Sara Goldrick-Rab
As the price of college continues to rise and the incomes of most Americans stagnate, too many college students are going hungry. According to researchers, approximately half of all undergraduates are food insecure. Food Insecurity on Campus—the first book to describe the problem—meets higher education's growing demand to tackle the pressing question "How can we end student hunger?"
Michael M. Crow and William B. Dabars
In The Fifth Wave, Michael M. Crow and William B. Dabars argue that colleges and universities need to be comprehensively redesigned in order to educate millions more qualified students while leveraging the complementarities between discovery and accessibility.
In this detailed introductory book—a comprehensive overview of and guide to the subject—Hockaday, an internationally recognized technology transfer expert, offers up his insider observations, opinions, and suggestions about university technology transfer.
There seems to be widespread agreement that—when it comes to the writing skills of college students—we are in the midst of a crisis. In Why They Can't Write, John Warner, who taught writing at the college level for two decades, argues that the problem isn't caused by a lack of rigor, or smartphones, or some generational character defect. Instead, he asserts, we're teaching writing wrong.
Robert Zemsky, Susan Shaman, and Susan Campbell Baldridge
In The College Stress Test, Robert Zemsky, Susan Shaman, and Susan Campbell Baldridge present readers with a full, frank, and informed discussion about college and university closures. Drawing on the massive institutional data set available from IPEDS (the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System), they build a stress test for estimating the market viability of more than 2,800 undergraduate institutions.
In An Insider's Guide to University Administration, Daniel Grassian helps those currently in faculty positions or outside academia determine whether a career in college and university administration is right for them—and, if so, how to best position themselves for success.
Jerusha O. Conner
The New Student Activists moves beyond simple stereotypes and convenient caricatures to examine the nuanced motives and complex experiences of real-life, present-day college student activists. Written for anyone interested in better understanding the latest wave of student activism on campuses, The New Student Activists raises fascinating implications for developmental theory and higher education policy and practice.
Joshua Kim and Edward Maloney
In Learning Innovation and the Future of Higher Education, Joshua Kim and Edward Maloney explore the context of the new discipline of digital learning, show how it exists within a larger body of scholarship, and give examples of how this scholarship is being used on campuses.
Financial stresses, changing student populations, and rapidly developing technologies all pose significant challenges to the nation's colleges and universities. In Academia Next, futurist and higher education expert Bryan Alexander addresses these evolving trends to better understand higher education's next generation.
Aaron M. Pallas and Anna Neumann
Arguing that colleges and universities best foster learning and growth for all through their teaching function, the book portrays teaching as a professional practice that teachers should actively hone. Drawing on rich research on K–12 classroom teaching, the authors develop the novel idea of convergent teaching, an approach that attends simultaneously to what students are learning and the personal, social, and cultural contexts shaping this process.
Dean O. Smith
To understand how universities function, it is critical to understand how their budgets work. In this useful volume, Dean O. Smith provides a concise explanation of university budgets—why they're important, how they are prepared, what information they provide, and how they are monitored.
James Martin, James E. Samels & Associates
In The New American College Town, James Martin, James E. Samels & Associates provide a practical guide for planning a new kind of American college town—one that moves beyond the nostalgia-tinged stereotype to achieve collaborative objectives.
Freeman A. Hrabowski III
with Philip J. Rous and Peter H. Henderson
In The Empowered University, Freeman A. Hrabowski III and coauthors Philip J. Rous and Peter H. Henderson probe the way senior leaders, administrators, staff, faculty, and students facilitate academic success by cultivating an empowering institutional culture and broad leadership for innovation.
Ricardo Azziz, Guilbert C. Hentschke, Lloyd A. Jacobs, and Bonita C. Jacobs
In the current challenging environment for higher education, mergers and consolidations are often viewed as options of last resort for struggling universities and small colleges. Strategic Mergers in Higher Education, however, argues that college and university mergers are a legitimate and proactive strategic option to help ensure success, maximize quality and service, and yield the best return for faculty and students.
Adrianna Kezar, Tom DePaola, and Daniel T. Scott
Over the past two decades, higher education employment has undergone a radical transformation with faculty becoming contingent and staff being outsourced. Non-tenure-track instructors now make up 70 percent of college faculty. Their pay for teaching eight courses averages $22,400 a year—less than the annual salary of most fast-food workers. In The Gig Academy, Adrianna Kezar, Tom DePaola, and Daniel T. Scott assess the impact of this disturbing workforce development.
Chris W. Gallagher
In College Made Whole, Chris W. Gallagher lays bare the dangers of the dis-integration of the college experience and shows how we can put higher education back together again. The successful colleges and universities of the future, Gallagher argues, will be integrated: coherently and cohesively designed to help students achieve a lifelong learning experience that is more than the sum of its parts.
Lauren J. Germain
In Campus Sexual Assault, Lauren J. Germain reframes conversations about sexual violence and student agency on American college campuses by drawing insight directly from stories of how survivors responded individually to attacks, as well as how and why peers, family members, and school, medical, and civil authorities were (or were not) engaged in addressing the crimes.
Patricia J. Gumport
In Academic Fault Lines, Patricia J. Gumport offers a compelling account of the profound shift in societal expectations for what public colleges and universities should be and do. She attributes these new attitudes to the ascendance of "industry logic"—the notion that higher education must prioritize serving the economy.
In Delivering Effective College Mental Health Services, psychologist Lee Keyes offers sound, field-tested advice for creating a congruent, cross-division, and service-oriented college counseling enterprise that best fits its campus culture and students.
Alice Lee Williams Brown
with Elizabeth Richmond Hayford
In How Boards Lead Small Colleges, Alice Lee Williams Brown and Elizabeth Richmond Hayford integrate case studies with theoretical analyses of college governance to explain the basic responsibilities of boards while demonstrating how some develop practices that fulfill these responsibilities more effectively than others.
