Gamson, Zelda F., Ed.; Levey, Richard H., Ed.
Excerpts from transcripts of sessions at the Institute on Innovations in Undergraduate Education, attended by 32 faculty and administrators representing 10 colleges and universities, are presented. Practitioners discuss their observations and experiences in innovation programs, led by staff members of the University of Michigan's Center for the Study of Higher Education. Topics covered include: organizational theory and practice (four approaches to the study of innovation; future responsiveness and needs of the present; and case studies of change in two small liberal arts colleges); students and faculty; external programs at the University of Pittsburgh, the University of New Hampshire, and Lone Mountain College. The outlook for the future is also discussed. (LBH)
