Private Higher Education: The Job Ahead. Talks from the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Presidents of Independent Colleges and Universities (Scottsdale, Arizona, 1984). Volume 13.
American Association of Presidents of Independent Colleges and Universities, Rexburg, ID.
Six talks from a conference on private higher education are presented. In "Regulating the Private University in the Name of Civil Rights," Robert A. Destro considers the "prevailing philosophy" of civil rights enforcement and developments since 1964. "AAPICU and 'The Civil Rights Act of 1984,'" by Bruce C. Hafen, Luisa L. Lancetti, and Stephen Markman, is an abbreviation of a statement delivered before the U.S. Civil Rights Commission. Jeffrey R. Holland's article, "Values and Morality in Higher Education," sketches historical changes in educational objectives and their effect on morality in society, as well as current educational issues. David A. Hubbard suggests that it is helpful for college presidents to see schools as corporations, institutions, churches, movements, and tribes in "More Than a Manager: The Broad View of Presidential Leadership." Topics addressed by Warren Bryan Martin in "A Future of Choices, A Choice of Futures" include the modern college, the principle of dissent, the use of reason/logic, and education as a moral quest. Finally, college presidents' concerns regarding fund-raising and the development team are explored in "The Role of the President in Fund Raising at Church-Related Colleges," by Charles W. Schoenherr.
