"This timely book, which brings together a group of widely respected thought leaders, starts a critically needed dialogue."

"An excellent look at the many ways institutions of higher education are partnering to expand their reach, reduce costs, and serve their students better, this book is an important resource for leaders and students who are beginning to explore collaboration and partnership options."

"This book is a must read for anyone in higher education who is responsible for ensuring the future success of a college or university and is courageous enough to consider 'game changing' strategic modes of operation including; mergers, acquisitions, alliances and closures."

"Consolidating Colleges and Merging Universities artfully combines useful frameworks, detailed case studies and strategic insights. Wisely, it sees beyond the creation of ambitious plans for alliances, consolidations and mergers to consider the critical dimensions of institutional change and leadership. It constitutes critical reading for presidents, trustees and faculty members, alike."

"Consolidating Colleges and Merging Universities offers us a critical exploration of the evolving landscape of Higher Education. Informational, insightful, practical and provocative, each chapter provides new models for consideration and poses questions that merit our full attention. This book will spark debate and discussion, and hopefully, serious reflection, on the choices and opportunities that will allow us to best serve students in this critical time in American Higher Education."

"Martin, Samels, and associates explore multiple pathways toward increasing financial sustainability while promoting new forms of shared resource management, effective approaches to collaborative educational experiences across institutions and organizations, and perhaps provide a new form of responsiveness to the increasing public demand on the value of higher education."
