Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This perceptive and cogent account draws on key data and firsthand observations to tell the story of the small college in America. Informed by his own experiences as a teacher and administrator, Samuel Schuman sketches the history and development of these institutions; then focuses on their current conditions and future possibilities. Administrators, faculty, and researchers will appreciate Schuman's insight into institutional choices and their consequences.

Book News Annotation:

Shuman traces the history and development of small colleges in America and considers their future possibilities. His analysis is based upon statistical data as well as personal visits to 12 campuses, including George Fox U., Grinnell College, and Westmont College. Informed by his own experiences as a scholar and administrator, he offers evidence that in higher education, small is beautiful. Schuman is Chancellor of the U. of Minnesota's Morris campus.
