This is a timely and vital contribution for those who take seriously the public purposes of higher education. Grounded within the philosophical roots of education in a democracy, each chapter inspires new thought and provides concrete recommendations for faculty, administrators and public policy. Concepts such as `return on engagement' and the `multiple narratives of higher education' have the potential to reframe our work in important ways by bringing heightened attention to the role of colleges and universities as citizens in the twenty-first century. -- Julie A Hatcher, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis
Higher Education beyond Job Creation offers a clear and compelling review of the programs and strategies at one university designed to embed civic learning and engagement across the student experience. It will inspire presidents, faculty of all disciplines, and staff interested in educating for community and global engagement. -- Nancy Thomas, Tufts University
