Higher Education Administration for Social Justice and Equity: Critical Perspectives for Leadership (Paperback)
Higher Education Administration for Social Justice and Equity empowers all administrators in higher education to engage in their work--to make decisions, hire, mentor, budget, create plans, and carry out other day-to-day operations--with a clear commitment to justice, sensitivity to power and privilege, and capacity to facilitate equitable outcomes. Grounding administration for social justice as a matter of daily work, this book translates abstract concepts and theory into the work of hiring, socialization, budgeting, and decision-making. Contributed chapters by renowned scholars and current practitioners examine the way higher education administration is organized, and will help readers both question existing structures and practices, and consider new and different ways of organizing campuses based on equity and social justice. Rich with case studies and pedagogical tools, this book connects theory to practice, and is an invaluable resource for current and aspiring administrators.
