From the Inside Flap:

If the academy is to continue to play a critical role in determining the beliefs and behavior of American society, it is vital that those within higher education remain clear and consistent about their core values. In this book, author Robert B. Young identifies seven essential values (service, truth, freedom, equality, individuation, justice, and community) and explains how higher education administrators, faculty, and trustees can incorporate these values into their own practice and transmit them to students and the community at large. Inspirational and insightful, No Neutral Ground offers practical suggestions designed to help administrators, trustees, and faculty hold on to core values in the face of steady pressures to compromise and change. Young explores the tensions that arise when institutional values come into conflict with broader social interests, such as free enterprise and religion. And he examines each of the seven core values in depth, showing, for example, how the value of freedom relates to faculty functions, administrative duties, institutional autonomy, and student rights.Both a thoughtful and a thought-provoking book, No Neutral Ground will help administrators, trustees, and faculty chart a steady course through the turbulent climate on today's college campuses.

From the Back Cover:

Today's climate of public cynicism toward education is being fueled by the contentious social and economic battles plaguing our nation's campuses. To withstand these assaults, it is imperative that those in higher education rediscover and manifest the values which fundamentally exemplify the objectives of higher education. No Neutral Ground is a provocative book that explores seven timeless values of higher education--service, truth, freedom, individuation, justice, and community--and shows how higher education administrators, faculty, and trustees can incorporate these values into their own practice and transmit them to students and the community at large.
