Sponsored by the Forum for the Future of Higher Education

Forum Futures 2000--a report developed from one of higher education's most select annual gatherings--features insights and recommendations from some of the best minds in education who are shaping the future of U.S. colleges and universities--a future where the old rules no longer apply.

Book News Annotation:

A report on a fall 1999 symposium convened to re-examine the essential purposes of higher education at a time of rapid technological change and intense competition when many old rules about teaching and learning no longer apply. Eight chapters consider topics such as strategy, finance, and the effects of technology, and discuss ways campus administrators can work to direct change rather than just react to it.
