Book Description:
This book provides a comprehensive view of the administration of academic affairs and related areas in higher education as they pertain to a threefold institutional mission of teaching, research, and service. It is a must-read for new academic administrators. It fills in a gap in required readings for higher education related majors and advanced degree programs. For the seasoned academic administrator in a senior rank, the book offers a systematic review of the big picture with sufficient depth and provoking analysis of challenging issues to help make progress toward reflective practice, research undertaking, and theoretical breakthrough. The goal of the book is to be a most effective and efficient educational tool, not just to help shorten the learning curve of the new and aspiring academic administrators but also to help renew critical thinking and creative leadership in existing academic administration.
