9780415874670: Organizational Theory in Higher Education (Core Concepts in Higher Education)

Organizational Theory in Higher Education offers a fresh take on the models and lenses through which higher education can be viewed by presenting a full range of organizational theories, from traditional to current. By alternating theory and practice chapters, noted scholar Kathleen Manning vividly illustrates the operations of higher education and its administration. Manning’s rich and interdisciplinary treatment enables leaders to gain a full understanding of the perspectives that operate on a college campus and ways to adopt effective practice in the context of new and continuing tensions, contexts, and challenges.

Special features include:

  • A unique presentation of each organizational model that includes both a theory chapter for contextual background and a case chapter illustrating the perspective in practice
  • Coverage of eight organizational approaches, both traditional as well as those often excluded from the literature―organized anarchy, collegium, political, cultural, bureaucratic, new science, feminist, and spiritual.
  • Consistent organizational elements across each theoretical chapter―including theoretical foundation, structure, metaphor, characteristics, and strengths and weaknesses―so that readers can better assess appropriate fit of theory to particular situations
  • Questions for Discussion and Recommended Readings assist the reader to make connections to their practice and to develop an in-depth understanding of the organizational theories

Organizational Theory in Higher Education provides a clear understanding of how organizational models can be used to elicit the most effective practice and to navigate the complexity of higher education today. This important book is ideal for courses in higher education administration and organizational theory and for administrators and practitioners seeking to gain insight into innovative ways to approach organizations.

About the Author:

Kathleen Manning is Professor in the Higher Education and Student Affairs Program, Department of Leadership and Development Science, at the University of Vermont, USA.

Review:

"This theory-rich volume is peppered with practical applications throughout, making it the tutorial that this generation of academic leaders, faculty, and graduate students need to understand and respond to routine and non-routine actions and events, on and off the campus."

George D. Kuh, Chancellor’s Professor Emeritus of Higher Education, Indiana University

"This book is an excellent resource for courses in the administration and management of higher education. It is rich with theories and perspectives that reflect the administrative challenges of higher education in the 21st century, and the engagingly written case studies will help students and practitioners apply theoretical knowledge to problems of administration."

Estela Bensimon, Professor of Higher Education and Co-Director of the Center for Urban Education, University of Southern California

"In all honesty, I can say that this is a book I’ve been waiting for! Manning presents a variety of organizational theories in ways that will interest students and support good discussions in the graduate seminar I teach. I appreciate the breadth of the analysis as well as the way the text is organized. It is a much needed resource!"

Delores E. McNair., Assistant Professor, Higher Education Leadership, University of the Pacific
