9781607090731: Beyond 2020: Envisioning the Future of Universities in America (The ACE Series on Higher Education)

In a world progressing with dizzying acceleration into the Information Age, the slow, measured approach of the traditional university can place administrator, faculty member, and student alike at a disadvantage. To move into this brave new world, the academic animal needs tools.

Beyond 2020: Envisioning the Future of Universities in America is that tool. Higher education experts in a host of fields project into the future and paint a clear picture of the future university. Nearly two dozen scholars, including James Duderstadt and Stephen Joel Trachtenberg, provide the most detailed road map yet to the perils and promise of the Information Age―as it directly applies to academia.

This is a collection of refreshingly frank opinions and observations from forward-thinking experts on the front lines with the best views on how to prepare the healthiest possible institution of tomorrow. It is something akin to an academic prophesy, but grounded in the expertise of a combined several centuries' worth of higher education experience.

About the Author:

Mary Landon Darden served eight years as a college administrator, where she transformed a struggling program into a national showcase, winning the National Exemplary Community Service Award from the National Council of Continuing Education and Training (NCCET). Darden is currently a consultant for several higher education organizations. She earned a doctorate in educational administration from Baylor University.

Review:

Mary Darden's book Beyond 2020, is a must-read for those who have an interest in education. It is poignant, without question, and informative. Anyone who reads Beyond 2020 is going to have a different understanding of education than they had prior to reading it. (Bernard Rapoport, former chair of the University of Texas System Board of Regents)

Beyond 2020: Envisioning the Future University brings to the forefront critical pieces of the higher education puzzle and offers a collection of interviews from some of the most diverse, innovative and experienced individuals in the academic world. Change is necessary and those who value our country's future should make this must reading. (Dr. Charles B. Reed, Chancellor, California State University)

The contributors to Beyond 2020 bring a multitude of experience and perspective to the discussion about the future of higher education. Their wisdom and foresight provide valuable guidance for university leaders working to address challenges and seize the opportunities that will position their institutions for success in the 21st century. (Lou Anna K. Simon, Ph.D., President, Michigan State Universi)
