While many books have criticized higher education for an apparent bias towards leftist agendas, John R. Campbell takes a different approach. Through the compilation of 65 vignettes that peek behind the boardroom door, the author focuses on the bureaucratic and organizational stagnation that has led to "dry rot" in the ivory towers of academia. Dry Rot in the Ivory Tower presents substantive evidence of the problems that exist in universities today, and provides the author's prognosis for change. He addresses nepotism, ineffective faculty, lack of effective leadership, and other serious problems at our institutions of higher education.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book is a hard-hitting analysis that is as timely as it is cogent. -- Cullom Davies, Noted Lincoln Scholar, University of Illinois-Springfield
Dry Rot in the Ivory Tower is a heartfelt, angry call to arms, asking us to look squarely at what we have either wrought or allowed to flourish in higher education. It calls attention to the gradual but pernicious proliferation of destructive forces at college campuses across the nation. -- Judith E.N. Albino, President, California School of Professional Psychology and President Emerita, University of Colorado-Boulder
Dry Rot in the Ivory Tower is an interesting and cautiously straightforward book. It is for provocative and visionary administrators. In addition, it is written to inform parents and students of the waste and misconduct that causes them to have to pay more for education. * Community College Journal of Research and Practice *
The book is an amazing account of what is wrong with higher education. It will stir the hearts and souls of the academic community as well as the general public. -- Paula Allen-Mears, Dean and Professor, School of Social Work, University of Michigan
