Today's colleges and universities face a new environment in which information technology is rapidly becoming the preferred mode of learning, and academic institutions can no longer rely on traditional methods to survive and prosper. In this collection of essays, seven highly respected institutional, association, and financial leaders examine the formidable challenges facing all types of campuses. The authors address such themes as competition from for-profit providers; building a powerful technological infrastructure on campus; changing restrictive organizational and administrative structures to reward, encourage, and manage technological innovation; and finding the money to fund these kinds of transformations. Although such profound changes can be wrenching, each contributor offers guidance based on the unwavering belief that higher education can successfully confront these challenges to renew itself.
