The University: An Owner's Manual
Drawing on eleven years as dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University, Henry Rosovsky offers a wise and witty view of America's colleges and universities, how they are run and the challenges they face, with special consideration to each of their "owners" - students, faculty, alumni, trustees, and others. He includes advice for hard-pressed administrators on answering awkward questions, asking for money, and other useful tools.
