Academic administration, argues Rudolph Weingartner, is different from administration or managing in business because of the special character of institutions of higher learning. Colleges and universities are founded to serve certain purposes; they are supported in various ways by governments and private individuals; and, as professional institutions, they have students, among others, as clients to whom they owe education services in ways analogous to the obligations hospitals have to their patients. In this book, Weingartner argues that academic administration is not just another job of managing, but a calling that importantly assists institutions to carry out their missions.

About the Author:

Rudolph H. Weingartner is professor emeritus of philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh. His books include "Undergraduate Education: Goals and Means" and "Fitting Form to Function: A Primer on the Organization of Academic Institutions".

Review:

'Trust' is the key word in Weingartner's thoughtful study of ethical decision making in university management, The Moral Dimensions of Academic Administration. All higher education policy makers should read Dr. Weingartner's book. (Higher Education In Europe)

Weingartner offers thoughtful advise, insights garned from decades of participation, and especially useful reflections on the moral aspects of managing the enterprise. The book rewards readers with provocative issues on which to reflect. (Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association)

It is surprising to learn that very little has been published concerning the moral contours of academic administration. Rudolph H. Weingartner provides a valuable corrective for this neglect and a useful foundation for future work. (Ethics, Place & Environment)

A well-organized philosophical overview of professional ethics, making it a useful resource for academic administrators. The sections on teaching and research offer discussions that would benefit advising administrators and faculty advisors. (NACADA Journal)

[Weingartner] is fully aware of the profundity and complexity of [his book's] subject matter. (Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning)
