This book brings together and analyzes recent research findings relevant to university and college management, both empirical and theoretical, and places them in the context of existing ideas about the management of the modern university, and the policy frameworks within which they operate. This book presents, analyzes and critiques the research which has appeared over the last five years on key institutional management themes, reporting on findings made in the UK, continental Europe, North America and Australia. It focuses on topics which have become highly significant, in policy and professional terms, in recent years, such as the task of the university in the knowledge society; internationalization of higher education; sustainability; universities' engagement with their communities; and the implications of European Higher Education Area.
