"Helpful insights into the different uses and limits of technology. An important resource for university leaders."
--Gilbert R. Whitaker, Jr., dean, Jesse H. Jones Graduate School of Management, Rice University

As distance education, distributed learning, virtual campuses, and digital libraries become more important for students, academic institutions can no longer rely on traditional methods to survive and prosper. In this landmark collection of essays, seven highly respected institutional, association, and financial leaders examine the challenges facing today's colleges and universities. They explore a number of critical issues, including how to deal with for-profit competition, how to build a powerful technological infrastructure, how to create administrative structures that reward and support technological innovation, and how to secure funding for such transformations.
