More than a century ago, John Dewey challenged the education community to look to civic involvement for the betterment of both community and campus. Today, the challenge remains. In his landmark book, editor Thomas Ehrlich has collected essays from national leaders who have focused on civic responsibility and higher education. Imparting both philosophy and working examples, Ehrlich provides the inspiration for innovative new programs in this essential area of learning.

About the Author:

Thomas Ehrlich is distinguished university scholar at San Francisco State University and a senior scholar at the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching

Review:

The writers represent a cast of heavyweights in scholarly 'thinking' and pragmatic 'doing.' This book is timely in that government and educational institutions have become more involved in emphasizing the importance of civic involvement by students. This is a readable text with much to offer any organization or idividual interested in a clearer understanding of the issues and prospects for enhancing civic responsibility by way of existing institutions-especially those of higher learning. The authors and editior deliver on the title and theme of this book. The text highly recommended for anyone interested in better understanding the philosophy and status of civic responsbility initiatives in higher education, as well as the means to further enchance that responsibility through planning, programming, and delivery. Civic Responsibility and Higher Education should be required reading. This powerful book calls for a drastic change in higher education's role in society. Recommended for general collections as well as all collections that support teacher education. (Community College Journal On Research And Practice)
