About

Overview

One of the most important issues academic organizations face is how the administration and faculty handle cultural and varied differences in higher education. High racial tensions as well as the ever-increasing need for equality suggest that changes at the highest level are essential to move forward. This title is an essential reference source that discusses the need for academic organizations to establish policy that is current, alive, and fluid by design, thereby supporting ongoing examination of best practices with an overt commitment to continued improvement, as well as an influence for future leaders who will emerge from the ranks. Featuring research on topics such as campus climate, university administration, and academic policy, this book is ideally designed for educators, department chairs, guidance professionals, career counselors, administrators, and policymakers seeking coverage on designing curricula that impact college and university admissions readiness and success.
