Today′s climate of public cynicism toward education is being fueled by the contentious social and economic battles plaguing our nation′s campuses. To withstand these assaults, it is imperative that those in higher education rediscover and manifest the values which fundamentally exemplify the objectives of higher education. No Neutral Ground is a provocative book that explores seven timeless values of higher education––service, truth, freedom, individuation, justice, and community––and shows how higher education administrators, faculty, and trustees can incorporate these values into their own practice and transmit them to students and the community at large.
