Reforming a College describes what the faculty at one college accomplished despite the constraints endemic to higher education. The new College of Education at The University of Tennessee-Knoxville sought to change how the faculty work with one another, their students, and the profession they serve. What was done at Tennessee reveals what is possible - and often impossible - to achieve in institutions that extol educational change but do not reform their own practices.
