Peter Stearns, Professor of History and Art History and formerly Provost of George Mason University, has published Guiding the American University: Contemporary Challenges and Choices. Guiding the American University covers the major facets of university operation—administration, faculty, and students—and discusses what should be changed and what should be preserved. Covering major topics for debate and real problems facing American higher education today—including the tenure system, online learning, administrative bloat, and campus culture—this book is a critical resource for aspiring and current higher education administrators. Congratulations to Professor Stearns on this addition to his extremely distinguished record of publication.
