Successful Fund Raising is a compilation of essays by university presidents and chief advancement officers who share their fundraising successes and demonstrate the importance of a team effort among the campus chief executive officer the trustees and the senior staff officer in charge of the advancement program The authors discuss how the advancement function is integrated into an institution s ongoing planning process as well as the respective roles and responsibilities of key players in this process The contributing authors also share specific information about their advancement programs including their goals strategies and tactics The successful programs covered in this book will serve as valuable models for institutions that are developing and refining their own funding activities, No description available, Is the university a dinosaur huge lumbering endearing in its own way yet unsuited to today s world Is it a thing of the past unnecessary in an age of the Internet and online learning In a book likely to provoke people who are loyal to the ideal of the university as well as those who foresee its demise Frank H T Rhodes acknowledges that the university is an imperfect institution but argues that it plays an essential role in modern society In the process he articulates strong opinions on a range of difficult issues The Creation of the Future is no defense or promotion of the status quo Focusing on American research universities Rhodes makes the case that they are an irreplaceable resource quite literally a national and international treasure whose value must be preserved through judicious renewal and reform beginning with a rededication to teaching as a moral vocation Rhodes discusses where the research university is today and how it got here as well as where it must go in the future In the process he addresses a wide range of contemporary challenges facing the institution including why universities can no longer be ivory towers why post tenure review of professors is desirable whether grading standards have become too lax why unionization of graduate students is inappropriate why affirmative action is necessary how governance and leadership can be improved how to maintain a sense of commitment to the university in the face of increasing disciplinary specialization why faculty must affirm that university membership has not only its privileges but also its price what should and should not be done to control the rapid rise in tuition whether curricula of professional schools should be more heavily weighted toward the liberal arts why service is a social obligation of all universities not just land grant institutions why research is vital to effective teaching His eighteen year tenure as president of Cornell University gives Rhodes a unique perspective on a system he finds both invaluable and in need of change Although he is an enthusiastic advocate he pulls no punches in recommending sweeping changes The greatest catastrophe facing universities today he writes is loss of community Without community knowledge becomes idiosyncratic The lone learner studying in isolation is vulnerable to narrowness dogmatism and untested assumption pursued in community learning will be expansive and informed contested by opposing interpretations leavened by differing experience and refined by alternative viewpoints In championing a new relevance for the American research university Rhodes argues for renewal through the application of old virtues to new realities Campus culture he says must embrace the human experience in all its richness breadth and ambiguity if it is to survive and thrive, An overview of the geology of the Earth including its relation to the rest of the universe the rocks and minerals of which it is made and the effects of glaciers gravity and other forces on the Earth
