Ingram, president, Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges. A provocative book that explores seven timeless values of higher education service, truth, freedom, equality, individuation, justice, and community and shows how higher education administrators, faculty, and trustees can incorporate these values into their own practice and transmit them to students and the community at large.
