Higher education and the new society.


Higher education and the new society.

Keller, George.

Johns Hopkins U. Press


188 pages




In this book addressing educators, policy makers, and administrators, higher education scholar Keller (d. 2007) considers the role of higher education in the context of global social change that includes population shifts, technological and economic upheavals, and a shift in values regarding education. Following analysis of these and other components of what he terms "the New Society," the author targets critical areas in education where resources and reinvigoration are especially important in light of change, including the decline of the liberal arts, the configuration of academic disciplines, and problems of finances and cost.
