Accountability in Higher Education by Burke

Accountability in Higher Education


Accountability in Higher Education by Burke

With contributions from leading experts in the field, this comprehensive and timely book presents the principles and guidelines for effective accountability for states, colleges, and universities. Achieving Accountability in Higher Education clarifies the concept of accountability for both public and private colleges and universities and explores its reaches and limits. The book examines the most recent developments, offers current models for each of the major approaches to accountability, and analyzes their shortcomings.


It is an excellent resource for those who wish to further policy development toward better accountability in higher education. (Journal of College Student Development, March/April 2006)
