Change has dramatically confronted higher education in the last decade, challenging it to its very roots.

Leaders from the most highly respected institutions in the country have examined the important issues facing higher education today and this book offers their insights on restructuring administrative operations, new revenue opportunities, debt management, capital renewal, endowment management, and more.
