New Book: Higher Education in a Changing World

Posted by American Association of Colleges and Universities on April 25, 2023

Today, higher education is in a state of flux. Changing dynamics, from accreditation to unsustainable economic models, have forced colleges and universities to examine their fundamental principles while also grappling with the changing needs of the national and globalized workforce, including the shift to online learning. At the same time, the diversification of the American population challenges higher education institutions to serve all of its students across racial, ethnic, gender and age boundaries.

Higher Education in a Changing World aims to provide knowledge and insight for those seeking to understand and adapt to the rapid pace of change in the twenty-first-century higher education space. Edited by Drs. Orlando Taylor, Nicole Retland, and Katherine McGraw, the book was written as a guide to an industry in a constant state of change.

Authored by nearly fifty higher education scholars and leaders from across the spectrum of higher education, the book tackles issues such as the global challenges facing higher education leadership; how institutions can thrive in a competitive environment; the opportunities of international outreach; initiatives to advance greater diversity and equity; the key role played by HBCUs and other special focused institutions; rethinking traditional STEM education; and how to foster transformative experiences for students.
