EDUC 8641 - The New Higher Education Enterprise


(6 sem. cr.) Creating and sustaining learning-centered institutions in today’s global economy is no small feat. Leaders of today’s colleges and universities must embrace their role in the enterprise of higher education and engage in new entrepreneurial, collaborative practices to promote, develop, and ensure the quality and sustainability of their programs and services. In this course, education professionals examine the current landscape of higher education, emerging trends and issues that require new types of leadership, and the historical and philosophical foundations of these issues. They investigate the social role of postsecondary education in promoting educational attainment, civic engagement, and globalization, as well as policy issues that are raising the stakes for accountability and quality assurance. They engage in activities and discussions to explore strategies for leveraging resources, achieving sustainability, and supporting new initiatives in this environment.
