Synopsis: This book provides needed guidance and advice for how colleges and universities can reorganize to foster more collaborative work. In a time of declining resources, financial challenges, changing demographics, and staff overturn, institutions are looking for ways to maximize their resources and still be effective. This book is based on a study of campuses that have been successful in recreating their environments to support collaborative work.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Organizing Higher Education for Collaboration

"Thanks to Kezar and Lester we now have a primer about the why and how of fostering collaboration in colleges and universities resistant to such culture-bending efforts."—George D. Kuh, Chancellor's Professor and director, Center for Postsecondary Research, Indiana University, Bloomington

"Kezar and Lester have systematically identified the organizational structures, policies, practices, and ways of thinking that must be aligned if the goal of the collaborative university is to become reality. This wonderfully accessible book brims with insights and concrete examples from four exemplary campuses that have made collaboration an institutional value and expectation. Educators seeking to foster interdisciplinarity; to build effective departments, centers, and institutes; to leverage institutional strengths across administrative boundaries; and to respond to the complex problems that challenge us as researchers, teachers, and members of local and global communities will be heartened to see the road to collaboration laid out so clearly."—Lisa R. Lattuca, associate professor, education, and senior research associate, Center for the Study of Higher Education, The Pennsylvania State University?

"Kezar and Lester provide evidence that research and theory can be successfully connected to practice. They masterfully reveal both the hope and promise of collaboration with the challenges and reality of redesigning the organizational architecture and social/cultural systems to engage individuals, offices, and disciplines around a shared campus agenda. The book makes it clear that higher education cannot solve today's complex campus issues with the same siloed structures that caused them. Those who find it hard to imagine such transformed systems, structures, and processes will find realistic examples and advice to bring this vision alive. The authors persuasively help the reader realize that collaboration is transformation and that transformation happens through collaboration. Embedding the lessons from campus case-study research, the lessons they draw are informed, realistic, and wise."—Susan R. Komives, professor, college student affairs administration, the University of Maryland; member, the Learning Reconsidered team; and president, the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education
