Summary

Similar to the first edition, The Shaping of American Higher Education combines historical and current events up to the mid 1990s. In this edition though, the revised text provides updated data and tables, new material on faculty, student admissions, and management practices, as well as a new chapter on the contemporary era. The book explores topics like curricular expansion, institutional growth, secular governance, and more. With end-of-chapter questions, this textbook presents a history of American higher education, with an emphasis on developments impacting current conditions, to students, professors, and practitioners.
