Description: As in the first edition of The Shaping of American Higher Education, the author combines historical perspective with in-depth coverage of current events to provide an authoritative, comprehensive account of the history of higher education in the United States.The book tracks trends--particularly in the last fifty years--in student access, faculty professionalization, curricular expansion, institutional growth, secular governance, public finance, research, and outcomes.The second edition includes updated data and tables as well as new material from recent specialized sources on faculty, student admissions, and management practices, as well as a new chapter on the contemporary era since the mid-1990s ("Privatization, Corporatization, and Accountability in the Contemporary Era: 1994-2009"). Also new to this edition are end-of-chapter questions for guidance, reflection, study, and use in classroom assignments.Overall, the book is designed so that students, professors, and practitioners can follow the development of each aspect of higher education as it occurred.
