Resources for Managing Our Institutions in These Turbulent Times
Engelkemeyer, Susan West
Change, v36 n1 p53 Jan-Feb 2004
This review draws on William Massy's recent book--"Honoring the Trust: Quality and Cost Containment in Higher Education" (Anker Publishing, 2003)--to establish the case for change and to suggest some of the tools to better manage institutions. Also included are two disparate resources to help reach that goal--resources that are used by only a fraction of the 3,500-plus postsecondary educational institutions in the United States. These resources offer promise to higher education as it strives to better manage costs while simultaneously enhancing student learning and institutional effectiveness.
