The integration of postmodernism in higher education is a widely debated issue. Critics of postmodernism in higher education hold the position that postmodernism breeds an unruliness of knowledge. Academicians in higher education often choose to educate students through means of prescription rather than implementing innovation in classroom delivery and instruction. By placing more emphasis on what is commonplace in the classroom and less focus on what is of interest to the 21st Century adult student, higher education institutions will begin to experience a rapid decline in enrollment. The purpose of this manuscript is to examine challenges in implementing postmodernistic strategies in higher education.
