Book Description

In this multi-faceted case study of one advanced institution of adult higher education; the contributors and editors to the volume layout significant challenges facing not just non-traditional post-secondary colleges and universities but all organizations of higher education in today’s swiftly changing context. Competing that nontraditional institutions are especially challenged in these unsettled times; they argue that these organizations’ distinctive academic programs are among the most vulnerable in the landscape of higher education today.

The 19 essays that makeup Principles; Practices; and Creative Tensions in Progressive Higher Education; (PDF) highlight and examine main creative tensions; rich interplays of emphases and values in higher education; in order to clarify and address more intentionally the questions that we must address: Can we make constructive use of these tensions? And can we chart a course that will both respond innovatively to swift change and maintain a vision and the principles and purposes on which that vision rests? Can we recognize what is at stake? Taken as a whole; this volume cast light on the creative tensions and questions that can; with thoughtful attention; help to keep a substitute; progressive vision of adult higher education alive.
