Managing Today's University
Strategies for Viability, Change, and Excellence
When first published in 1974, Frederick E. Balderston's Managing Today's University was hailed as a classic in the literature of higher education management. Now, in this new, fully revised edition, Balderston offers an up-to-date and comprehensive view of current management challenges, placing them within an equally comprehensive understanding of the scope and purpose of today's university.Covering the full range of topics--from the basics of university organization to acquisition and management of resources, academic focus, quality, and strategic issues--the author examines the most critical questions facing administrators, trustees, faculty leaders, and all those who provide analytical support to institutional leaders.Balderston offers advice on an array of fundamental administrative functions, as well as on meeting the challenge of values issues such as diversity and political correctness. He offers a framework for directing institutions through the critical processes of governance and leadership. He explains the complexities of financial issues such as budgeting, revenues and enrollment, and financial aid. And he examines the basic question of defining and achieving strategic direction for the university as a whole.
