ABSTRACT
Perspectives in Higher Education. Casimir Kowalski and Joseph Cangemi. Philosophical Library, New York, 1983, 122 pp. The author seeks to provide the reader with a broad perspective on various issues in higher education today. Included are questions about liberal arts colleges and their future, higher education in the future, higher education and the law, the impact of the experience of attending college on students, the problem of declining enrollment, negative attitudes of faculty, the real purpose of higher education, and the problem of the college drop-out. The concern for discipline must yield to a concern for persons is emphasized throughout the book. The authors provide ten suggestions for improvement, one of which involves creation of informal drop-in centers for students to receive academic assistance. The authors trace the inception of nine colleges from the eve of the American Revolution. The authors suggest a cooperative management approach to leadership involving both faculty and staff, and a college committee involving faculty and students.
