The quiet crisis : how higher education is failing America by Peter Smith( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Go to college. Get a good job. This sounds simple, but is this what American's higher education system is actually doing? Not for many, according to Smith (founding president, California State U.- Monterey). Drawing from his experience in state and national politics as well as his years in academia, Smith details the ways in which American higher education is failing at educating, especially in its ability to serve an increasingly diverse population in an increasingly complex and technological world. Proposing that universities change from institutions of teaching to institutions of learning, Smith proposes a number of startlingly simple innovations that will help America get into the current millennium in terms of higher education.
